Drop Collection

This guide walks you through dropping a collection from a cluster.

Dropping a collection eradicates all linked data, encompassing data, metadata, and indexes. Exercise caution before dropping a collection because this operation is irreversible.

# Drop a collection that is created using a MilvusClient object
from pymilvus import MilvusClient

res = client.drop_collection(collection_name="medium_articles_2020")



On the Zilliz Cloud cluster, each collection can accommodate only one vector field.
