Content deletion/retrieval questions (2019-10-07)

If you delete video content via the API, what type of confirmation response do you get back, if any? What about when you delete an empty session shell?
If an empty scheduled recording shell is deleted it goes to the recycle bin. If the deletion of the scheduled recording was incorrect, how do we pull it back out of the recycle bin via the API? Will it retain the same GUID and URL in the event that is meant to be a webcast.

There is not currently a method to retrieve a deleted session from the Recycle Bin using the public API.
When using the REST API to delete a session, if the session is successfully deleted then the response would have a status code of 200, and will return the GUID of the deleted session.
The SOAP API's DeleteSessions method does not return any confirmation when it is called. If there are no errors, then it would just return no content with a status code of 200.
