terminate-instance-in-auto-scaling-group

Description

Terminates the specified instance and optionally adjusts the desired group size.

This call simply makes a termination request. The instance is not terminated immediately.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Synopsis

  terminate-instance-in-auto-scaling-group
--instance-id <value>
--should-decrement-desired-capacity | --no-should-decrement-desired-capacity
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--instance-id (string)

The ID of the instance.

--should-decrement-desired-capacity | --no-should-decrement-desired-capacity (boolean)

If true , terminating the instance also decrements the size of the Auto Scaling group.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Examples

To terminate an instance in an Auto Scaling group

This example terminates the specified instance from the specified Auto Scaling group without updating the size of the group:

aws autoscaling terminate-instance-in-auto-scaling-group --instance-id i-93633f9b --no-should-decrement-desired-capacity

Auto Scaling launches a replacement instance after the specified instance terminates.
