How to delete orders In Magento 2?

Deleting orders can be accomplished by following a few simple steps. In this guide, we explore how to use SQL commands to delete orders from the database of your Magento 2 site.

Option 1: Use PHP Script To Remove Orders

One of the most common and most powerful ways to delete orders on a Magento 2 site is to use a PHP script. Navigate to your PhpMyAdmin and locate the command line. You can then follow this syntax to delete orders:

<?php
use Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap;
require 'app/bootstrap.php';
$bootstrap = Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);
$objectManager = $bootstrap->getObjectManager();
$registry = $objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\Registry');
$state = $objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\App\State');
$state->setAreaCode('frontend');
$ids = array(00123,00456,000453,0002544);

Add this code to the above to delete a range of orders:

foreach(range(1000000010, 4000000999) as $id) {

Option 2: Use SQL Queries To Delete All Orders

Using the same command line from PhpMyAdmin, you can also utilize SQL queries to delete orders from the database. It should be noted that you cannot delete individual orders using this method.

Here’s the syntax:

SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0;
TRUNCATE `sales_order`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_datetime`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_decimal`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_entity`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_entity_datetime`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_entity_decimal`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_entity_int`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_entity_text`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_entity_varchar`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_int`;
TRUNCATE `sales_order_text`;

TRUNCATE `tag`;
TRUNCATE `tag_relation`;
TRUNCATE `tag_summary`;
TRUNCATE `wishlist`;
TRUNCATE `log_quote`;
TRUNCATE `report_event`;
ALTER TABLE `sales_order` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;

ALTER TABLE `report_event` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
TRUNCATE `customer_address_entity`;
TRUNCATE `customer_address_entity_datetime`;
TRUNCATE `customer_address_entity_decimal`;
TRUNCATE `customer_address_entity_int`;
TRUNCATE `customer_address_entity_text`;
TRUNCATE `customer_address_entity_varchar`;
TRUNCATE `customer_entity`;
TRUNCATE `customer_entity_datetime`;
TRUNCATE `customer_entity_decimal`;
TRUNCATE `customer_entity_int`;
TRUNCATE `customer_entity_text`;
TRUNCATE `customer_entity_varchar`;
TRUNCATE `log_customer`;
TRUNCATE `log_visitor`;
TRUNCATE `log_visitor_info`;
ALTER TABLE `customer_address_entity` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_address_entity_datetime` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_address_entity_decimal` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_address_entity_int` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_address_entity_text` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_address_entity_varchar` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_entity` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_entity_datetime` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_entity_decimal` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_entity_int` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_entity_text` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `customer_entity_varchar` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `log_customer` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `log_visitor` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
ALTER TABLE `log_visitor_info` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
TRUNCATE `eav_entity_store`;
ALTER TABLE `eav_entity_store` AUTO_INCREMENT=1;
SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=1;

Option 3: Use A PHP Command

You can also delete individual orders in Magento 2 using a single command. This command deletes an order by identifying its order ID. Use the following command:

php bin/magento order: delete order_id

In the above command, “order_id” would be supplied by you. It could be “7” for example:

php bin/magento order: delete 7

Option 4: Use An Extension

The fourth and by far easiest option for deleting orders is to use a simple Magento 2 extension such as the one provided by Amasty. This extension makes it easy to completely remove orders and even automate clearance periods to keep your records up to date.
