Deleting lost data in Sanity.io using the API

Last updated: Oct 28, 2020
Another question: I deleted a content type named “Category” but it seems the data that was created with it is still there somewhere. I get a graphql warning that documents exists with this type that I cannot access anymore. Is there a way to clean up this “lost data”?

you can try to fetch documentIds and remove it through API

I have the documentIds. How can you remove them through the API?

client.delete('bike-123')
  .then(res => {
    console.log('Bike deleted')
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error('Delete failed: ', err.message)
  })
