See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--volume-id (string)

The volume ID.

--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 unassign a volume from its instance

The following example unassigns a registered Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume from its instance. The volume is identified by its volume ID, which is the GUID that AWS OpsWorks assigns when you register the volume with a stack, not the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) volume ID.

aws opsworks --region us-east-1 unassign-volume --volume-id 8430177d-52b7-4948-9c62-e195af4703df

Output: None.
