[ aws . glacier ]



This operation aborts the vault locking process if the vault lock is not in the Locked state. If the vault lock is in the Locked state when this operation is requested, the operation returns an AccessDeniedException error. Aborting the vault locking process removes the vault lock policy from the specified vault.

A vault lock is put into the InProgress state by calling initiate-vault-lock . A vault lock is put into the Locked state by calling complete-vault-lock . You can get the state of a vault lock by calling get-vault-lock . For more information about the vault locking process, see Amazon Glacier Vault Lock . For more information about vault lock policies, see Amazon Glacier Access Control with Vault Lock Policies .

This operation is idempotent. You can successfully invoke this operation multiple times, if the vault lock is in the InProgress state or if there is no policy associated with the vault.

--account-id (string)

The AccountId value is the AWS account ID. This value must match the AWS account ID associated with the credentials used to sign the request. You can either specify an AWS account ID or optionally a single '- ' (hyphen), in which case Amazon Glacier uses the AWS account ID associated with the credentials used to sign the request. If you specify your account ID, do not include any hyphens ('-') in the ID.

--vault-name (string)

The name of the vault.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON account-id provided. The JSON account-id 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.
