Description

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  delete-launch-template
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--launch-template-id <value>]
[--launch-template-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--launch-template-id (string)

The ID of the launch template.

You must specify either the LaunchTemplateId or the LaunchTemplateName , but not both.

--launch-template-name (string)

The name of the launch template.

You must specify either the LaunchTemplateName or the LaunchTemplateId , but not both.

--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.
