[ aws . codeartifact ]



Deletes one or more versions of a package. A deleted package version cannot be restored in your repository. If you want to remove a package version from your repository and be able to restore it later, set its status to Archived . Archived packages cannot be downloaded from a repository and don't show up with list package APIs (for example, ListackageVersions ), but you can restore them using UpdatePackageVersionsStatus .

--domain (string)

The name of the domain that contains the package to delete.

--domain-owner (string)

The 12-digit account number of the Amazon Web Services account that owns the domain. It does not include dashes or spaces.

--repository (string)

The name of the repository that contains the package versions to delete.

--format (string)

The format of the package versions to delete.

Possible values:

  • npm
  • pypi
  • maven
  • nuget

--namespace (string)

The namespace of the package. The package component that specifies its namespace depends on its type. For example:

  • The namespace of a Maven package is its groupId .
  • The namespace of an npm package is its scope .
  • A Python package does not contain a corresponding component, so Python packages do not have a namespace.

--package (string)

The name of the package with the versions to delete.

--versions (list)

An array of strings that specify the versions of the package to delete.



"string" "string" ...

--expected-status (string)

The expected status of the package version to delete.

Possible values:

  • Published
  • Unfinished
  • Unlisted
  • Archived
  • Disposed
  • Deleted

--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.

    --package test-package \
    --versions 4.0.0
