DELETE /api/apps/versions/{AppVersionID}

Deletes the specified version of an app.

Note: If you want to completely remove an app, use DELETE /api/apps/{AppID}. If you want to delete the only existing app version, but keep the app, first add a new version, using POST /api/apps/{AppID}/versions, and then delete the old version using DELETE /api/apps/versions/{AppVersionID}. An app cannot exist in the Akana API Platform without at least one valid version.

Workflow: This operation checks whether the resource is governed by a workflow, and if so whether the action is valid based on the current state of the resource. If the action is not valid, the operation will fail.

Authorization Roles/Permissions: Must be logged in. App team member, Business Admin
