[ aws . qldb ]

delete-ledger

Description

Deletes a ledger and all of its contents. This action is irreversible.

If deletion protection is enabled, you must first disable it before you can delete the ledger using the QLDB API or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). You can disable it by calling the UpdateLedger operation to set the flag to false . The QLDB console disables deletion protection for you when you use it to delete a ledger.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  delete-ledger
--name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name of the ledger that you want to delete.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
