DeleteTags - Amazon Elastic File System



DEPRECATED - DeleteTags is deprecated and not maintained. To remove tags from EFS resources, use the UntagResource API action.

Deletes the specified tags from a file system. If the DeleteTags request includes a tag key that doesn't exist, Amazon EFS ignores it and doesn't cause an error. For more information about tags and related restrictions, see Tag restrictions in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

This operation requires permissions for the elasticfilesystem:DeleteTags action.
