[ aws . kms ]

delete-alias

Description

Deletes the specified alias. You cannot perform this operation on an alias in a different AWS account.

Because an alias is not a property of a CMK, you can delete and change the aliases of a CMK without affecting the CMK. Also, aliases do not appear in the response from the DescribeKey operation. To get the aliases of all CMKs, use the ListAliases operation.

Each CMK can have multiple aliases. To change the alias of a CMK, use DeleteAlias to delete the current alias and CreateAlias to create a new alias. To associate an existing alias with a different customer master key (CMK), call UpdateAlias .

Synopsis

  delete-alias
--alias-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--alias-name (string)

The alias to be deleted. The name must start with the word "alias" followed by a forward slash (alias/). Aliases that begin with "alias/aws" are reserved.

--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.
