[ aws . iam ]



Retrieves the status of your service-linked role deletion. After you use DeleteServiceLinkedRole to submit a service-linked role for deletion, you can use the DeletionTaskId parameter in GetServiceLinkedRoleDeletionStatus to check the status of the deletion. If the deletion fails, this operation returns the reason that it failed, if that information is returned by the service.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--deletion-task-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--deletion-task-id (string)

The deletion task identifier. This identifier is returned by the DeleteServiceLinkedRole operation in the format task/aws-service-role/<service-principal-name>/<role-name>/<task-uuid> .

--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.


To check the status of a request to delete a service-linked role

The following get-service-linked-role-deletion-status example displays the status of a previously request to delete a service-linked role. The delete operation occurs asynchronously. When you make the request, you get a DeletionTaskId value that you provide as a parameter for this command.

aws iam get-service-linked-role-deletion-status --deletion-task-id task/aws-service-role/


  "Status": "SUCCEEDED"
