Delete an event or event type - Amazon Fraud Detector

Delete an event or event type

When you delete an event, Amazon Fraud Detector permanently deletes that event and the data associated with the event is no longer stored in Amazon Fraud Detector.

To delete an event that Amazon Fraud Detector has evaluated through GetEventPrediction API

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon Fraud Detector console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/frauddetector.

  2. In the left navigation pane of the console, choose Search past predictions.

  3. Choose the event that you want to delete.

  4. Choose Actions, and then choose Delete event.

  5. Enter delete, and then choose Delete event.

Note

This deletes all records that are associated to that Event ID, including any event data sent to the SendEvent operation and any prediction data generated through the GetEventPrediction operation.

To delete an event that is stored in Amazon Fraud Detector but has not been evaluated (that is, it was stored via the SendEvent operation), you must make a DeleteEvent request and specify the Event ID and Event Type ID. If you want to delete both the event and any prediction history associated with the event, set the value of the deleteAuditHistory parameter to “true”.

To delete all events associated with an event type

  1. In the left navigation pane of the console, choose Event types

  2. Choose the event type for which you want all events deleted.

  3. Navigate to Stored events tab and choose Delete stored events

Depending on the number of stored events for the event type, it might take some time to delete all stored events. For example, a 1 GB dataset (approximately 1-2 million events for the average customer) takes around 2 hours to delete. During this time, new events that you send to Amazon Fraud Detector of this event type are not stored, but you can continue to generate fraud predictions via the GetEventPrediction operation.

To delete an event type
