The unique Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway that the virtual tape to delete is associated with. Use the ListGateways operation to return a list of gateways for your account and Amazon Web Services Region.

--tape-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the virtual tape to delete.

--bypass-governance-retention | --no-bypass-governance-retention (boolean)

Set to TRUE to delete an archived tape that belongs to a custom pool with tape retention lock. Only archived tapes with tape retention lock set to governance can be deleted. Archived tapes with tape retention lock set to compliance can't be deleted.

--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.
