Synopsis

  delete-web-acl
--name <value>
--scope <value>
--id <value>
--lock-token <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name of the Web ACL. You cannot change the name of a Web ACL after you create it.

--scope (string)

Specifies whether this is for an AWS CloudFront distribution or for a regional application. A regional application can be an Application Load Balancer (ALB) or an API Gateway stage.

To work with CloudFront, you must also specify the Region US East (N. Virginia) as follows:

  • CLI - Specify the Region when you use the CloudFront scope: --scope=CLOUDFRONT --region=us-east-1 .
  • API and SDKs - For all calls, use the Region endpoint us-east-1.

Possible values:

  • CLOUDFRONT
  • REGIONAL

--id (string)

The unique identifier for the Web ACL. This ID is returned in the responses to create and list commands. You provide it to operations like update and delete.

--lock-token (string)

A token used for optimistic locking. AWS WAF returns a token to your get and list requests, to mark the state of the entity at the time of the request. To make changes to the entity associated with the token, you provide the token to operations like update and delete. AWS WAF uses the token to ensure that no changes have been made to the entity since you last retrieved it. If a change has been made, the update fails with a WAFOptimisticLockException . If this happens, perform another get, and use the new token returned by that operation.

--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

To delete a web ACL

The following delete-web-acl deletes the specified web ACL from your account. A web ACL can only be deleted when it's not associated with any resources. This call requires an ID, which you can obtain from the call, list-web-acls, and a lock token, which you can obtain from the call list-web-acls or the call get-web-acl.

aws wafv2 delete-web-acl \
    --name test \
    --scope REGIONAL \
    --id a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111 \
    --lock-token ebab4ed2-155e-4c9a-9efb-e4c45665b1f5

This command produces no output.
