Create the client.

import { IAMClient } from "@aws-sdk/client-iam"; // Set the AWS Region. const REGION = "REGION"; // For example, "us-east-1". // Create an IAM service client object. const iamClient = new IAMClient({ region: REGION }); export { iamClient };

Delete the account alias.

// Import required AWS SDK clients and commands for Node.js. import { iamClient } from "./libs/iamClient.js"; import { DeleteAccountAliasCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-iam"; // Set the parameters. export const params = { AccountAlias: "ALIAS" }; // ALIAS export const run = async () => { try { const data = await iamClient.send(new DeleteAccountAliasCommand(params)); console.log("Success", data); return data; } catch (err) { console.log("Error", err); } }; run();
