delete-organizational-unit

Description

Deletes an organizational unit from a root or another OU. You must first remove all accounts and child OUs from the OU that you want to delete.

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  delete-organizational-unit
--organizational-unit-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--organizational-unit-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the organizational unit that you want to delete. You can get the ID from the list-organizational-units-for-parent operation.

The regex pattern for an organizational unit ID string requires "ou-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits (the ID of the root that contains the OU) followed by a second "-" dash and from 8 to 32 additional lower-case letters or digits.

--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.

--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.
