Permanently deletes a ByteMatchSet . You can't delete a ByteMatchSet if it's still used in any Rules or if it still includes any ByteMatchTuple objects (any filters).

If you just want to remove a ByteMatchSet from a Rule , use update-rule .

To permanently delete a ByteMatchSet , perform the following steps:

  • Update the ByteMatchSet to remove filters, if any. For more information, see update-byte-match-set .
  • Use get-change-token to get the change token that you provide in the change-token parameter of a delete-byte-match-set request.
  • Submit a delete-byte-match-set request.

The ByteMatchSetId of the ByteMatchSet that you want to delete. ByteMatchSetId is returned by create-byte-match-set and by list-byte-match-sets .

--change-token (string)

The value returned by the most recent call to get-change-token .

--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.


ChangeToken -> (string)

The change-token that you used to submit the delete-byte-match-set request. You can also use this value to query the status of the request. For more information, see get-change-token-status .
