Accidentally send millions of events of a single type, can I remove them from my monthly event quota?

My application triggers an event when there is an API error. One of my services was disabled, and that caused many retries, each retry triggered an event, so in the end, each user could have thousands of errors, and that ended up being a couple millions of events.

Is there a way to clean up all these events to prevent them from counting towards my event quota?

Hey @AlexCuenca 

I don’t think there is a way to prevent these events to be counted towards your event quota since they have been already ingested.

However, if you would like to stop collecting new data for that event moving forward you can explore the blocking/ deleting option as highlighted here.

Also, you can try the drop filters approach if you intend to remove this event data from your charts at query time.
