Hi all,

I was reading the licensing FAQ and noticed that free users are limited to 10 million messages in total.
Even though that would take years to exceed, I was wondering if there is any way to delete old data just for house keeping purposes.
For example; every month delete messages that are more than 18 months old?

Does any of the ThingSpeak APIs support this?

At present there is no option to selectively delete data in a channel. You can copy the new data to a new channel and then delete all the data in the old channel, but this method does consume messages.
