[ aws . ssm ]



Deletes an activation. You aren't required to delete an activation. If you delete an activation, you can no longer use it to register additional managed nodes. Deleting an activation doesn't de-register managed nodes. You must manually de-register managed nodes.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--activation-id (string)

The ID of the activation that you want to delete.

--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.
