When specifying RollbackStack , you preserve the state of previously provisioned resources when an operation fails. You can check the status of the stack through the DescribeStacks operation.

Rolls back the specified stack to the last known stable state from CREATE_FAILED or UPDATE_FAILED stack statuses.

This operation will delete a stack if it doesn't contain a last known stable state. A last known stable state includes any status in a *_COMPLETE . This includes the following stack statuses.

[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--stack-name (string)

The name that's associated with the stack.

--role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an Identity and Access Management role that CloudFormation assumes to rollback the stack.

--client-request-token (string)

A unique identifier for this RollbackStack request.

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


StackId -> (string)
