While triggering the deleteAPI in the WebApi sample, the following error is obtained and thus the deleteApi is not called.
Server Error in '/' Application.
The resource cannot be found.
HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for, or one of its dependencies, could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.
Requested URL: /api/Orders/10248
When the POST and PUT actions are triggered, no additional parameters are appended to the Route link, that is api/Orders, and so these events are triggered. Refer to the following screenshot.
Figure 1: POST and PUT actions triggered
When the DELETE action is triggered, the primary key value is also appended to the Route link, that is, api/Orders/10248. Refer to the following screenshot.
Figure 2: DELETE action triggered
Since the Route in the WebApiConfig file does not include the id parameter, the 404 error is thrown. Refer to the following screenshot.
So changing the Route link in the WebApiConfig resolves this error.
After changing the route in the WebApiConfig.cs file, the deleteApi is called as shown in the following screenshot.
