[ aws . fsx ]

delete-snapshot

Description

Deletes an Amazon FSx for OpenZFS snapshot. After deletion, the snapshot no longer exists, and its data is gone. Deleting a snapshot doesn't affect snapshots stored in a file system backup.

The DeleteSnapshot operation returns instantly. The snapshot appears with the lifecycle status of DELETING until the deletion is complete.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

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

Options

--client-request-token (string)

(Optional) An idempotency token for resource creation, in a string of up to 64 ASCII characters. This token is automatically filled on your behalf when you use the Command Line Interface (CLI) or an Amazon Web Services SDK.

--snapshot-id (string)

The ID of the snapshot that you want to delete.

--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.

Output

SnapshotId -> (string)

The ID of the deleted snapshot.

Lifecycle -> (string)

The lifecycle status of the snapshot. If the DeleteSnapshot operation is successful, this status is DELETING .
