untag-resources

Description

Removes the specified tags from the specified resources. When you specify a tag key, the action removes both that key and its associated value. The operation succeeds even if you attempt to remove tags from a resource that were already removed. Note the following:

  • To remove tags from a resource, you need the necessary permissions for the service that the resource belongs to as well as permissions for removing tags. For more information, see the documentation for the service whose resource you want to untag.
  • You can only tag resources that are located in the specified Amazon Web Services Region for the calling Amazon Web Services account.
Minimum permissions

In addition to the tag:UntagResources permission required by this operation, you must also have the remove tags permission defined by the service that created the resource. For example, to remove the tags from an Amazon EC2 instance using the UntagResources operation, you must have both of the following permissions:

  • tag:UntagResource
  • ec2:DeleteTags

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  untag-resources
--resource-arn-list <value>
--tag-keys <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-arn-list (list)

Specifies a list of ARNs of the resources that you want to remove tags from.

An ARN (Amazon Resource Name) uniquely identifies a resource. For more information, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and Amazon Web Services Service Namespaces in the Amazon Web Services General Reference .

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--tag-keys (list)

Specifies a list of tag keys that you want to remove from the specified resources.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--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.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To remove a tag from a resource

The following untag-resources example removes the specified tag keys and any associated values from the specified resource.

aws resourcegroupstaggingapi untag-resources \
    --resource-arn-list arn:aws:s3:::awsexamplebucket \
    --tag-keys Environment CostCenter

Output:

{
    "FailedResourcesMap": {}
}

For more information, see UntagResources in the Resource Groups Tagging API Reference.

Output

FailedResourcesMap -> (map)

A map containing a key-value pair for each failed item that couldn't be untagged. The key is the ARN of the failed resource. The value is a FailureInfo object that contains an error code, a status code, and an error message. If there are no errors, the FailedResourcesMap is empty.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

Information about the errors that are returned for each failed resource. This information can include InternalServiceException and InvalidParameterException errors. It can also include any valid error code returned by the Amazon Web Services service that hosts the resource that the ARN key represents.

The following are common error codes that you might receive from other Amazon Web Services services:

For more information on errors that are generated from other Amazon Web Services services, see the documentation for that service.

StatusCode -> (integer)

The HTTP status code of the common error.

ErrorCode -> (string)

The code of the common error. Valid values include InternalServiceException , InvalidParameterException , and any valid error code returned by the Amazon Web Services service that hosts the resource that you want to tag.
