delete-file-system

Description

Deletes a file system, permanently severing access to its contents. Upon return, the file system no longer exists and you can't access any contents of the deleted file system.

You can't delete a file system that is in use. That is, if the file system has any mount targets, you must first delete them. For more information, see describe-mount-targets and delete-mount-target .

Note

The delete-file-system call returns while the file system state is still deleting . You can check the file system deletion status by calling the describe-file-systems operation, which returns a list of file systems in your account. If you pass file system ID or creation token for the deleted file system, the describe-file-systems returns a 404 FileSystemNotFound error.

This operation requires permissions for the elasticfilesystem:DeleteFileSystem action.

--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.
