Synopsis

  detach-user-policy
--user-name <value>
--policy-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--user-name (string)

The name (friendly name, not ARN) of the IAM user to detach the policy from.

This parameter allows (per its regex pattern ) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-

--policy-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM policy you want to detach.

For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference .

--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.
