[ aws . quicksight ]



Deletes an analysis from Amazon QuickSight. You can optionally include a recovery window during which you can restore the analysis. If you don't specify a recovery window value, the operation defaults to 30 days. Amazon QuickSight attaches a DeletionTime stamp to the response that specifies the end of the recovery window. At the end of the recovery window, Amazon QuickSight deletes the analysis permanently.

At any time before recovery window ends, you can use the RestoreAnalysis API operation to remove the DeletionTime stamp and cancel the deletion of the analysis. The analysis remains visible in the API until it's deleted, so you can describe it but you can't make a template from it.

An analysis that's scheduled for deletion isn't accessible in the Amazon QuickSight console. To access it in the console, restore it. Deleting an analysis doesn't delete the dashboards that you publish from it.

--aws-account-id (string)

The ID of the Amazon Web Services account where you want to delete an analysis.

--analysis-id (string)

The ID of the analysis that you're deleting.

--recovery-window-in-days (long)

A value that specifies the number of days that Amazon QuickSight waits before it deletes the analysis. You can't use this parameter with the ForceDeleteWithoutRecovery option in the same API call. The default value is 30.

--force-delete-without-recovery | --no-force-delete-without-recovery (boolean)

This option defaults to the value NoForceDeleteWithoutRecovery . To immediately delete the analysis, add the ForceDeleteWithoutRecovery option. You can't restore an analysis after it's deleted.

--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.
