[ aws . opsworkscm ]



Deletes the server and the underlying AWS CloudFormation stacks (including the server's EC2 instance). When you run this command, the server state is updated to DELETING . After the server is deleted, it is no longer returned by DescribeServer requests. If the AWS CloudFormation stack cannot be deleted, the server cannot be deleted.

This operation is asynchronous.

An InvalidStateException is thrown when a server deletion is already in progress. A ResourceNotFoundException is thrown when the server does not exist. A ValidationException is raised when parameters of the request are not valid.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--server-name (string)

The ID of the server to delete.

--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 delete servers

The following delete-server command deletes a Chef Automate server, identified by the server's name. After the server is deleted, it is no longer returned by DescribeServer requests.:

The output shows whether the server deletion succeeded.
