Unable to delete data from influxbb cloud

I have a free tier account set up on influxdb cloud, and am unable to delete any historical data.

  1. Installed influx CLI on Windows 10

  2. Created a new config with the command:

influx config create -a -n <myconfigname> -u https://eu-central-1-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com -t <mytoken> -o <myorgname>
  1. Received Active Name confirmation

  2. Send delete command:

 influx delete -b rpidemo --start 2023-07-01T00:00:00Z --stop 2023-07-23T15:00:00Z

No data is deleted in the database.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since the above post I have also tried to issue the delete command using Curl as follows:

curl --request POST https://eu-central-1-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com/api/v2/delete?org=my-org&bucket=my-bucket \
  --header 'Authorization: Token mu-api-token' \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data '{
    "start": "2023-07-01T00:00:00Z",
    "stop": "2023-07-23T15:00:00Z"

I receive the following error message:

curl: (35) schannel: next InitializeSecurityContext failed: Unknown error (0x80092012) - The revocation function was unable to check revocation for the certificate. ‘bucket’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Further to the above posts I have found the following link which suggests that deleting from influxdb cloud has been disabled.

Could someone at influxdb cloud please confirm this, and I will stop chasing my tail. Many thanks.

+1, same problem here.
Nobody from influx dares to answer here!?
Database without a delete option for single points is useless. That is a very basic feature. Can you please tell us what your plans are?
