DeleteAccountPolicy - Amazon CloudWatch Logs


Deletes a CloudWatch Logs account policy. This stops the policy from applying to all log groups or a subset of log groups in the account. Log-group level policies will still be in effect.

To use this operation, you must be signed on with the correct permissions depending on the type of policy that you are deleting.

  • To delete a data protection policy, you must have the logs:DeleteDataProtectionPolicy and logs:DeleteAccountPolicy permissions.

  • To delete a subscription filter policy, you must have the logs:DeleteSubscriptionFilter and logs:DeleteAccountPolicy permissions.
