See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--target-group-arn <value>
--targets <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--target-group-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the target group.

--targets (list)

The targets. If you specified a port override when you registered a target, you must specify both the target ID and the port when you deregister it.

Shorthand Syntax:

Id=string,Port=integer,AvailabilityZone=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Id": "string",
    "Port": integer,
    "AvailabilityZone": "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.


Example 1: To deregister a target from a target group

aws elbv2 deregister-targets \
    --target-group-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-targets/73e2d6bc24d8a067 \
    --targets Id=i-1234567890abcdef0

Example 2: To deregister a target registered using port overrides

The following deregister-targets example removes an instance from a target group that was registered using port overrides.

aws elbv2 deregister-targets \
    --target-group-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-internal-targets/3bb63f11dfb0faf9 \
    --targets Id=i-1234567890abcdef0,Port=80 Id=i-1234567890abcdef0,Port=766
