[ aws . events ]



Removes the specified targets from the specified rule. When the rule is triggered, those targets are no longer be invoked.

When you remove a target, when the associated rule triggers, removed targets might continue to be invoked. Please allow a short period of time for changes to take effect.

This action can partially fail if too many requests are made at the same time. If that happens, FailedEntryCount is non-zero in the response and each entry in FailedEntries provides the ID of the failed target and the error code.
