Removes the association between a Face supplied in an array of FaceIds and the User. If the User is not present already, then a ResourceNotFound exception is thrown. If successful, an array of faces that are disassociated from the User is returned. If a given face is already disassociated from the given UserID, it will be ignored and not be returned in the response. If a given face is already associated with a different User or not found in the collection it will be returned as part of UnsuccessfulDisassociations . You can remove 1 - 100 face IDs from a user at one time.

--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.
