See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--id <value>
[--if-match <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--id (string)

The ID of the public key you want to remove from CloudFront.

--if-match (string)

The value of the ETag header that you received when retrieving the public key identity to delete. For example: E2QWRUHAPOMQZL .

--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.


To delete a CloudFront public key

The following example deletes the CloudFront public key with the ID KDFB19YGCR002. To delete a public key, you must have its ID and ETag. The ID is returned in the output of the create-public-key and list-public-keys commands. To get the ETag, use the get-public-key or get-public-key-config command. Use the --if-match option to provide the public key's ETag.

aws cloudfront delete-public-key \
    --id KDFB19YGCR002 \
    --if-match E2QWRUHEXAMPLE

When successful, this command has no output.
