Delete an OTA update.

Requires permission to access the DeleteOTAUpdate action.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--ota-update-id <value>
[--delete-stream | --no-delete-stream]
[--force-delete-aws-job | --no-force-delete-aws-job]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--ota-update-id (string)

The ID of the OTA update to delete.

--delete-stream | --no-delete-stream (boolean)

When true, the stream created by the OTAUpdate process is deleted when the OTA update is deleted. Ignored if the stream specified in the OTAUpdate is supplied by the user.

--force-delete-aws-job | --no-force-delete-aws-job (boolean)

When true, deletes the IoT job created by the OTAUpdate process even if it is "IN_PROGRESS". Otherwise, if the job is not in a terminal state ("COMPLETED" or "CANCELED") an exception will occur. The default is false.

--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.
