[ aws . sso ]



Removes the locally stored SSO tokens from the client-side cache and sends an API call to the Amazon Web Services SSO service to invalidate the corresponding server-side Amazon Web Services SSO sign in session.


If a user uses Amazon Web Services SSO to access the AWS CLI, the user’s Amazon Web Services SSO sign in session is used to obtain an IAM session, as specified in the corresponding Amazon Web Services SSO permission set. More specifically, Amazon Web Services SSO assumes an IAM role in the target account on behalf of the user, and the corresponding temporary Amazon Web Services credentials are returned to the client.

After user logout, any existing IAM role sessions that were created by using Amazon Web Services SSO permission sets continue based on the duration configured in the permission set. For more information, see User authentications in the Amazon Web Services SSO User Guide .

--access-token <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--access-token (string)

The token issued by the CreateToken API call. For more information, see CreateToken in the Amazon Web Services SSO OIDC API Reference Guide .

--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.
