[ aws . s3control ]




This action deletes an Amazon S3 on Outposts bucket. To delete an S3 bucket, see DeleteBucket in the Amazon Simple Storage Service API .

Deletes the Amazon S3 on Outposts bucket. All objects (including all object versions and delete markers) in the bucket must be deleted before the bucket itself can be deleted. For more information, see Using Amazon S3 on Outposts in Amazon Simple Storage Service User Guide .

All Amazon S3 on Outposts REST API requests for this action require an additional parameter of x-amz-outpost-id to be passed with the request and an S3 on Outposts endpoint hostname prefix instead of s3-control . For an example of the request syntax for Amazon S3 on Outposts that uses the S3 on Outposts endpoint hostname prefix and the x-amz-outpost-id derived using the access point ARN, see the Examples section.

--account-id <value>
--bucket <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--account-id (string)

The account ID that owns the Outposts bucket.

--bucket (string)

Specifies the bucket being deleted.

For using this parameter with Amazon S3 on Outposts with the REST API, you must specify the name and the x-amz-outpost-id as well.

For using this parameter with S3 on Outposts with the AWS SDK and CLI, you must specify the ARN of the bucket accessed in the format arn:aws:s3-outposts:Region:account-id:outpost/outpost-id/bucket/my-bucket-name . For example, to access the bucket reports through outpost my-outpost owned by account 123456789012 in Region us-west-2 , use the URL encoding of arn:aws:s3-outposts:us-west-2:123456789012:outpost/my-outpost/bucket/reports . The value must be URL encoded.

--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.
