Erases the network settings and credentials held by a device




Name Type Description
action Constant A value specifying the clearing action to be performed (default = all, from release 33)




From impOS™ release 33, you may choose to pass one of the following action constants to control the method’s behavior:

Constant Action
CONFIG_WIFI Clear any saved WiFi configuration information but retain enrollment data. This will also clear WiFi hints set with
CONFIG_STATIC_NETWORK Clear any saved static network settings (see imp.setstaticnetworkconfiguration())
CONFIG_PROXY Clear any saved proxy server settings (see imp.setproxy())
CONFIG_ALL Clear all settings (default)

If no action constant is passed, all network settings, including WiFi network access credentials and device-enrollment data, will be cleared.

This method does not affect the current connection, only future connections. If a device is connected when this method is called, the device will not immediately and automatically disconnect, even if the stored WiFi network is cleared. It’s possible that the device may stay connected for some time. However, as soon as it enters deep sleep or is power cycled, the connection will be cut. You may also disconnect manually by calling server.disconnect(), but you must subsequently re-connect manually when you require the device to go online.
