What is the REST API endpoint used to remove an index peer from an index cluster?

Hello all.
I am scaling back our index tier through automation and I have been unable to find out how to remove a peer from the index cluster via REST API. I know that I need the GUID of the peer I want to remove, that's easy, I just want to be able to do all this work from "afar" and not have to log in to each instance to do this.

So the question is, what is the REST API endpoint I would use to remove an index peer from an index cluster?

Thanks in advance.

You can use cluster/master/peers to get all peers in your cluster. The title field gives you the guid (The title field is not listed in the return values. However, it is returned. Look at the sample response XML) . and then you can use cluster/master/control/control/remove_peers to use the guid to remove the peer.
