Permanently deletes a RuleGroup. You can't delete a RuleGroup if it's still used in any WebACL objects or if it still includes any rules.

If you just want to remove a RuleGroup from a WebACL, use UpdateWebACL.

To permanently delete a RuleGroup from AWS WAF, perform the following steps:

  1. Update the RuleGroup to remove rules, if any. For more information, see UpdateRuleGroup.

  2. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of a DeleteRuleGroup request.

  3. Submit a DeleteRuleGroup request.

Note:

For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to DeleteRuleGroupAsync.
