- [Instructor] Welcome back.…How did the challenge go?…It was a relatively straightforward exercise.…We'll get more challenging as we move forward.…Let's look at the code…and make sure everything's working for you.…First, scroll down to the delete method.…So the first piece is adding a delete operation…to the chain of methods for an endpoint.…But where?…Should it be in the list of items…or on the individual item?…If you decided to put it in the individual item chain,…you're spot on.…A delete operation needs to happen on a specific item…and not on the list.…
If list allowed delete,…it should in fact delete the entire list…and that's very rarely what you want to happen.…And for deleting at the individual item level…we should be able to define our query object easily.…In fact, it can just be copied from the read…for this type of object.…We're looking for an item in the database…with the specified index.…Remember that you need to cast the index field to an integer…to make sure it works correctly.…Trust me when I tell you this really makes a difference.…
