$object_id(int) (required)
ID of the object metadata is for
$meta_key(string) (required)
Metadata key
$meta_value(mixed)
Metadata value. Must be serializable if non-scalar. If specified, only delete metadata entries with this value. Otherwise, delete all entries with the specified meta_key. Pass null,false, or an empty string to skip this check. (For backward compatibility, it is not possible to pass an empty string to delete those entries with an empty string for a value.) *Default:''`*
$delete_all(true/false)
If true, delete matching metadata entries for all objects, ignoring the specified object_id. Otherwise, only delete matching metadata entries for the specified object_id.
Default: false
