[ aws . pinpoint ]



Deletes a message template for messages sent using the in-app message channel.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--template-name (string)

The name of the message template. A template name must start with an alphanumeric character and can contain a maximum of 128 characters. The characters can be alphanumeric characters, underscores (_), or hyphens (-). Template names are case sensitive.

--template-version (string)

The unique identifier for the version of the message template to update, retrieve information about, or delete. To retrieve identifiers and other information for all the versions of a template, use the Template Versionsresource.

If specified, this value must match the identifier for an existing template version. If specified for an update operation, this value must match the identifier for the latest existing version of the template. This restriction helps ensure that race conditions don't occur.

If you don't specify a value for this parameter, Amazon Pinpoint does the following:

  • For a get operation, retrieves information about the active version of the template.
  • For an update operation, saves the updates to (overwrites) the latest existing version of the template, if the create-new-version parameter isn't used or is set to false.
  • For a delete operation, deletes the template, including all versions of the template.

--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.
