This option specifies the location of the script to execute when a collection is deleted. Note that only a single script path will be accepted; specifying additional arguments or a shell literal will result in an error, which will block collection deletion until it is resolved.

When a collection is deleted, the script will be called with the following arguments:


Name of the collection that is being deleted.

Set this configuration key in the server configuration.

Use the configuration key editor to add or edit the pre_collection_delete_script key, and set the value. This can be set to any valid String value.
