Yes you can delete multiple contacts using comma after each contact id

Ref: https://developers.ringcentral.com/api-reference/External-Contacts/deleteContact

Example

/restapi/v1.0/account/accountId/extension/extensionId/address-book/contact/contactId1, contactid2,…

Perfect. that worked!

I needed to encode the comma in the URI to %2c to get it to work and found that I needed to limit the # of contacts in a single delete to 25 or so.

thanks you!
