# Truncate Table in Cassandra

Cassandra Truncate Table
To truncate a table in Cassandra, the TRUNCATE command is used. Thus, all the rows are deleted permanently from the table, but the table structure exists.

Syntax:

TRUNCATE table_name


Example:
Employees table:

id name salary 1 Adi 50000 2 Bruno 30000 3 Chris 60000 4 Davis 20000 5 Eliza 15000

Query:

TRUNCATE employees;

Explanation:
The ’employees’ is an already created table. Here the table is truncated. Verify it by using the below command.
SELECT * FROM employees;
Output:

id	name	salary
