BatchDeleteRecipeVersion - AWS Glue DataBrew


Deletes one or more versions of a recipe at a time.

The entire request will be rejected if:

  • The recipe does not exist.

  • There is an invalid version identifier in the list of versions.

  • The version list is empty.

  • The version list size exceeds 50.

  • The version list contains duplicate entries.

The request will complete successfully, but with partial failures, if:

  • A version does not exist.

  • A version is being used by a job.

  • You specify LATEST_WORKING, but it's being used by a project.

  • The version fails to be deleted.

The LATEST_WORKING version will only be deleted if the recipe has no other versions. If you try to delete LATEST_WORKING while other versions exist (or if they can't be deleted), then LATEST_WORKING will be listed as partial failure in the response.
