DisableImageDeregistrationProtection - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud


Disables deregistration protection for an AMI. When deregistration protection is disabled, the AMI can be deregistered.

If you chose to include a 24-hour cooldown period when you enabled deregistration protection for the AMI, then, when you disable deregistration protection, you won’t immediately be able to deregister the AMI.

For more information, see Protect an AMI from deregistration in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.
