Synopsis

Calls the Amazon WorkSpaces TerminateWorkspaces API operation.

Syntax

IdFromRequestObject (Default)

Remove-WKSWorkspace
-Request <TerminateRequest[]>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

SimpleId

Remove-WKSWorkspace
-WorkspaceId <String[]>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Terminates the specified WorkSpaces. Terminating a WorkSpace is a permanent action and cannot be undone. The user's data is destroyed. If you need to archive any user data, contact Amazon Web Services before terminating the WorkSpace. You can terminate a WorkSpace that is in any state except SUSPENDED. This operation is asynchronous and returns before the WorkSpaces have been completely terminated.

Parameters

This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the Request parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^Request' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
The WorkSpaces to terminate. You can specify up to 25 WorkSpaces.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
AliasesTerminateWorkspaceRequest, TerminateWorkspaceRequests
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'FailedRequests'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.WorkSpaces.Model.TerminateWorkspacesResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.WorkSpaces.Model.TerminateWorkspacesResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-WorkspaceId <String[]>
The IDs of one or more WorkSpaces to terminate.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information.

-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of Amazon.WorkSpaces.Model.FailedWorkspaceChangeRequest objects. The service call response (type Amazon.WorkSpaces.Model.TerminateWorkspacesResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>Remove-WKSWorkspace -WorkspaceId "ws-1a2b3c4d5","ws-6a7b8c9d0" -Force
Terminates multiple WorkSpaces. use of the -Force switch stops the cmdlet from prompting for confirmation.

Example 2

PS C:\>Get-WKSWorkspaces | Remove-WKSWorkspace
Retrieves the collection of all your WorkSpaces and pipes the IDs to the -WorkSpaceId parameter of Remove-WKSWorkspace, terminating all of the WorkSpaces. The cmdlet will prompt before each WorkSpace is terminated. To suppress the confirmation prompt add the -Force switch.

Example 3

$arrRequest = @()
$request1 = New-Object Amazon.WorkSpaces.Model.TerminateRequest
$request1.WorkspaceId = 'ws-12345678'
$arrRequest += $request1
$request2 = New-Object Amazon.WorkSpaces.Model.TerminateRequest
$request2.WorkspaceId = 'ws-abcdefgh'
$arrRequest += $request2
Remove-WKSWorkspace -Request $arrRequest
This example shows how to pass TerminateRequest objects defining the WorkSpaces to be terminated. The cmdlet will prompt for confirmation before proceeding, unless the -Force switch parameter is also specified.
