Usage Notes
To delete a task with this request, you must supply the ID of the task that you want to delete. To obtain this ID, use GET Task Instance Information in list task mode or one of the opentasksearch requests to locate the task and then extract the task ID from the Task document that it returns.
To delete a task successfully, the user ID in user must have permission to access the specified task. If the supplied user ID does not have access to the task, or if the specified task does not exist, an exception will be thrown.
