delete-replication-group

Description

Deletes an existing replication group. By default, this operation deletes the entire replication group, including the primary/primaries and all of the read replicas. If the replication group has only one primary, you can optionally delete only the read replicas, while retaining the primary by setting RetainPrimaryCluster=true .

When you receive a successful response from this operation, Amazon ElastiCache immediately begins deleting the selected resources; you cannot cancel or revert this operation.

Note

This operation is valid for Redis only.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  delete-replication-group
--replication-group-id <value>
[--retain-primary-cluster | --no-retain-primary-cluster]
[--final-snapshot-identifier <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--replication-group-id (string)

The identifier for the cluster to be deleted. This parameter is not case sensitive.

--retain-primary-cluster | --no-retain-primary-cluster (boolean)

If set to true , all of the read replicas are deleted, but the primary node is retained.

--final-snapshot-identifier (string)

The name of a final node group (shard) snapshot. ElastiCache creates the snapshot from the primary node in the cluster, rather than one of the replicas; this is to ensure that it captures the freshest data. After the final snapshot is taken, the replication group is immediately 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.

Examples

To delete a replication group

The following delete-replication-group example deletes the specified replication group. By default, this operation deletes the entire replication group, including the primary or primaries and all of the read replicas. If the replication group has only one primary, you can optionally delete only the read replicas, while keeping the primary by setting --retain-primary-cluster.

When you get a successful response from this operation, Amazon ElastiCache immediately begins deleting the selected resources; you can't cancel or revert this operation. This operation is valid for Redis only.

aws elasticache delete-replication-group
--replication-group-id "mygroup"

Output:

     "ReplicationGroup": {

The name of the Global Datastore

GlobalReplicationGroupMemberRole -> (string)

The role of the replication group in a Global Datastore. Can be primary or secondary.

Status -> (string)

The current state of this replication group - creating , available , modifying , deleting , create-failed , snapshotting .

PendingModifiedValues -> (structure)

A group of settings to be applied to the replication group, either immediately or during the next maintenance window.

PrimaryClusterId -> (string)

The primary cluster ID that is applied immediately (if --apply-immediately was specified), or during the next maintenance window.

AutomaticFailoverStatus -> (string)

Indicates the status of automatic failover for this Redis replication group.

Resharding -> (structure)

The status of an online resharding operation.

SlotMigration -> (structure)

Represents the progress of an online resharding operation.

ProgressPercentage -> (double)

The percentage of the slot migration that is complete.

AuthTokenStatus -> (string)

The auth token status

MemberClusters -> (list)

The names of all the cache clusters that are part of this replication group.

(string)

NodeGroups -> (list)

A list of node groups in this replication group. For Redis (cluster mode disabled) replication groups, this is a single-element list. For Redis (cluster mode enabled) replication groups, the list contains an entry for each node group (shard).

(structure)

Represents a collection of cache nodes in a replication group. One node in the node group is the read/write primary node. All the other nodes are read-only Replica nodes.

NodeGroupId -> (string)

The identifier for the node group (shard). A Redis (cluster mode disabled) replication group contains only 1 node group; therefore, the node group ID is 0001. A Redis (cluster mode enabled) replication group contains 1 to 90 node groups numbered 0001 to 0090. Optionally, the user can provide the id for a node group.

Status -> (string)

The current state of this replication group - creating , available , modifying , deleting .

PrimaryEndpoint -> (structure)

The endpoint of the primary node in this node group (shard).

Address -> (string)

The DNS hostname of the cache node.

Port -> (integer)

The port number that the cache engine is listening on.

ReaderEndpoint -> (structure)

The endpoint of the replica nodes in this node group (shard).

Address -> (string)

The DNS hostname of the cache node.

Port -> (integer)

The port number that the cache engine is listening on.

Slots -> (string)

The keyspace for this node group (shard).

NodeGroupMembers -> (list)

A list containing information about individual nodes within the node group (shard).

(structure)

Represents a single node within a node group (shard).

CacheClusterId -> (string)

The ID of the cluster to which the node belongs.

CacheNodeId -> (string)

The ID of the node within its cluster. A node ID is a numeric identifier (0001, 0002, etc.).

If you do not specify this parameter, ElastiCache automatically chooses an appropriate time range.
