Deleting a list of DNS records

The DNS “import” button adds each record listed in the uploaded file. It would be nice to have a similar “batch delete” button that deletes each record listed in the uploaded file.


I agree and I know this has come up in the past, this may get merged with the earlier request. Best option at the moment is the API, Cloudflare API Documentation

If you are not prepared to write your own, there is a nice toolset available from a Cloudflare Community member.

Ended up using the API, thanks. I did pip install cloudflare, generated a token online with DNS edit permissions, and then used the following script.

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import sys
import CloudFlare

with open('token') as f:
  token =

cf = CloudFlare.CloudFlare(token=token)
zones = cf.zones.get()
id = zones[0]['id']

todo = set()

for line in sys.stdin:
  name,addr = line.split()

dns_records = cf.zones.dns_records.get(id,params={'per_page':10000})

for r in dns_records:
  if r['type'] != 'A': continue
  if (r['name'],r['content']) not in todo: continue
