The globus-connect-server collection batch-delete command deletes multiple guest collections. This command submits the delete request of up to 50 collection IDs to the GCS Manager, but returns before the deletions are fully processed.
If any of the IDs correspond to mapped collections, the GCS Manager returns an error indicating which ones were invalid.
Any of the IDs which refer to a deleted or non-existent collection are ignored by the GCS manager.
The ID value can be found by using the globus-connect-server collection list command. This command includes filters for guest collections, creation date, and most recent data accesses.
