delete-fleet

Description

Deletes everything related to a fleet. Before deleting a fleet, you must set the fleet's desired capacity to zero. See UpdateFleetCapacity .

If the fleet being deleted has a VPC peering connection, you first need to get a valid authorization (good for 24 hours) by calling CreateVpcPeeringAuthorization . You do not need to explicitly delete the VPC peering connection--this is done as part of the delete fleet process.

This action removes the fleet and its resources. Once a fleet is deleted, you can no longer use any of the resource in that fleet.

Synopsis

  delete-fleet
--fleet-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--fleet-id (string)

A unique identifier for a fleet to be deleted. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.

--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.

Examples

To delete a fleet that is no longer in use

The following delete-fleet example removes a fleet that has been scaled down to zero instances. If the fleet capacity is greater than zero, the request fails with an HTTP 400 error.

aws gamelift delete-fleet \
   --fleet-id fleet-a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111

This command produces no output.
