delete-policy

Description

Deletes the specified policy from your organization. Before you perform this operation, you must first detach the policy from all organizational units (OUs), roots, and accounts.

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

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

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

Options

--policy-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the policy that you want to delete. You can get the ID from the ListPolicies or ListPoliciesForTarget operations.

The regex pattern for a policy ID string requires "p-" followed by from 8 to 128 lowercase or uppercase letters, digits, or the underscore character (_).

--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.
