Amazon Cognito Federated Identities
API Reference (API Version 2014-06-30)

UnlinkDeveloperIdentity

Unlinks a DeveloperUserIdentifier from an existing identity. Unlinked developer users will be considered new identities next time they are seen. If, for a given Cognito identity, you remove all federated identities as well as the developer user identifier, the Cognito identity becomes inaccessible.

You must use AWS Developer credentials to call this API.
