Delete a pipeline

Introduced in GitLab 11.6.

Deleting a pipeline expires all pipeline caches, and deletes all immediately related objects, such as builds, logs, artifacts, and triggers. This action cannot be undone.

Deleting a pipeline does not automatically delete its child pipelines. See the related issue for details.
