[ aws . glue ]

delete-database

Description

Removes a specified Database from a Data Catalog.

Note

After completing this operation, you will no longer have access to the tables (and all table versions and partitions that might belong to the tables) and the user-defined functions in the deleted database. AWS Glue deletes these "orphaned" resources asynchronously in a timely manner, at the discretion of the service.

To ensure immediate deletion of all related resources, before calling DeleteDatabase , use DeleteTableVersion or BatchDeleteTableVersion , DeletePartition or BatchDeletePartition , DeleteUserDefinedFunction , and DeleteTable or BatchDeleteTable , to delete any resources that belong to the database.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  delete-database
[--catalog-id <value>]
--name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--catalog-id (string)

The ID of the Data Catalog in which the database resides. If none is supplied, the AWS account ID is used by default.

--name (string)

The name of the Database to delete. For Hive compatibility, this must be all lowercase.

--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.
