Where the group_name is your designated name for the group of customer user settings. Grouping is shown in the Example Request Body below.

When getting or deleting grouped custom user settings, you must include the extra header information.

Grouping custom user settings is not required and if the extra header information is not included, the custom user settings are added normally and can be retrieved or deleted without including the additional header.

delete
DELETE /v2/accounts/{accountId}/users/{userId}/custom_settings

Deletes the specified custom user settings for a single user.

###Deleting Grouped Custom User Settings###

X-DocuSign-User-Settings-Key:group_name

Where the group_name is your designated name for the group of customer user settings.
