[ aws . ecr ]



Deletes a list of specified images within a specified repository. Images are specified with either imageTag or imageDigest .

You can remove a tag from an image by specifying the image's tag in your request. When you remove the last tag from an image, the image is deleted from your repository.

You can completely delete an image (and all of its tags) by specifying the image's digest in your request.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--registry-id <value>]

--image-ids <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--registry-id (string)

The AWS account ID associated with the registry that contains the image to delete. If you do not specify a registry, the default registry is assumed.

--repository-name (string)

The repository that contains the image to delete.

--image-ids (list)

A list of image ID references that correspond to images to delete. The format of the imageIds reference is imageTag=tag or imageDigest=digest .

Shorthand Syntax:

imageDigest=string,imageTag=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "imageDigest": "string",
    "imageTag": "string"

--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.
