Container for the parameters to the DeleteRule operation. Permanently deletes a Rule. You can't delete a Rule if it's still used in any WebACL objects or if it still includes any predicates, such as ByteMatchSet objects.

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

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

  1. Update the Rule to remove predicates, if any. For more information, see UpdateRule.

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

  3. Submit a DeleteRule request.
