Description

Deletes an Amazon FSx for Windows File Server backup, deleting its contents. After deletion, the backup no longer exists, and its data is gone.

The DeleteBackup call returns instantly. The backup will not show up in later DescribeBackups calls.

Warning

The data in a deleted backup is also deleted and can't be recovered by any means.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  delete-backup
--backup-id <value>
[--client-request-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--backup-id (string)

The ID of the backup you want to delete.

--client-request-token (string)

(Optional) A string of up to 64 ASCII characters that Amazon FSx uses to ensure idempotent deletion. This is automatically filled on your behalf when using the AWS CLI or SDK.

--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.
