Sorry, I should have been more clear. I'd like to create a Data Manager
tool that an Admin can use to remove items from a Tool Data Table.
I agree that reproducibility is an important concern and the Admin should
keep that in mind when managing the data tables.
In our case, MentaLiST is designed to pull MLST schemes from public data
, enterobase.warwick.ac.uk), and build kmer
databases. Those public datasets are updated periodically, so an Admin may
decide to build new versions of the databases at various timepoints. We do
stamp the data table entries with the creation date, so each new database
gets a new entry in the tool data table.
At some point an Admin may want to remove older versions of a database.
They might find that there is some sort of error or corruption in one of
the existing databases. They might want to free up a bit of storage, or
just make the user interface a bit cleaner by removing old entries.
I noticed that the galaxy API provides a method to do this and it's also
included in bioblend, so I'm curious to know if there's a way to call that
method from a Data Manager tool.

as far as I know data-tables are admin only and users can not interact
with them. You can think about it like a frozen set of reference data, that
should not be touched for reproducibility reasons.
Can I ask for the use-case?
