[ aws . iot ]



Disassociates a Device Defender security profile from a thing group or from this account.

Requires permission to access the DetachSecurityProfile action.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--security-profile-name <value>
--security-profile-target-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--security-profile-name (string)

The security profile that is detached.

--security-profile-target-arn (string)

The ARN of the thing group from which the security profile is detached.

--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 disassociate a security profile from a target

The following detach-security-profile example removes the association between the AWS IoT Device Defender security profile named Testprofile and the all registered things target.

aws iot detach-security-profile \
    --security-profile-name Testprofile \
    --security-profile-target-arn "arn:aws:iot:us-west-2:123456789012:all/registered-things"

This command produces no output.
