    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about a third party website's functionality. – Jeff Schaller Dec 27 '18 at 3:07

    The management of a docker repository is specific to docker hub. There are third party tools (eg github.com/amalfra/docker-hub ) which may help with CLI access, but this is not really a "Unix/Linux" related question. – Stephen Harris Dec 27 '18 at 4:09
  • @StephenHarris thanks and please help me how can I do. how can I release this issue to which forum? – Willie Cheng Dec 27 '18 at 4:37
  • You may be able to do it with curl, but something like that will probably end in pain. You will probably loose all of your work. And how often do you do this operation, is it worth automating. See Parito 80 20 rule. 20% of operations will be done 80% of the time. – ctrl-alt-delor Dec 27 '18 at 10:28

Although the API allows working with the repos on CLI, to delete a repo you must log in and use the website. https://success.docker.com/article/how-do-i-delete-a-repository
