[ aws . forecast ]



Deletes an entire resource tree. This operation will delete the parent resource and its child resources.

Child resources are resources that were created from another resource. For example, when a forecast is generated from a predictor, the forecast is the child resource and the predictor is the parent resource.

Amazon Forecast resources possess the following parent-child resource hierarchies:

  • Dataset : dataset import jobs
  • Dataset Group : predictors, predictor backtest export jobs, forecasts, forecast export jobs
  • Predictor : predictor backtest export jobs, forecasts, forecast export jobs
  • Forecast : forecast export jobs


DeleteResourceTree will only delete Amazon Forecast resources, and will not delete datasets or exported files stored in Amazon S3.

--resource-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the parent resource to delete. All child resources of the parent resource will also be 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.
