DeleteResourceTree - Amazon Forecast


Deletes an entire resource tree. This operation will delete the parent resource and its child resources.

Child resources are resources that were created from another resource. For example, when a forecast is generated from a predictor, the forecast is the child resource and the predictor is the parent resource.

Amazon Forecast resources possess the following parent-child resource hierarchies:

  • Dataset: dataset import jobs

  • Dataset Group: predictors, predictor backtest export jobs, forecasts, forecast export jobs

  • Predictor: predictor backtest export jobs, forecasts, forecast export jobs

  • Forecast: forecast export jobs


DeleteResourceTree will only delete Amazon Forecast resources, and will not delete datasets or exported files stored in Amazon S3.
