--resource-share-arn (string)

Specifies Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource share that you want to remove resources or principals from.

--resource-arns (list)

Specifies a list of Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) for one or more resources that you want to remove from the resource share. After the operation runs, these resources are no longer shared with principals associated with the resource share.



"string" "string" ...

--principals (list)

Specifies a list of one or more principals that no longer are to have access to the resources in this resource share.

You can include the following values:

  • An Amazon Web Services account ID, for example: 123456789012
  • An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an organization in Organizations, for example: organizations::123456789012:organization/o-exampleorgid
  • An ARN of an organizational unit (OU) in Organizations, for example: organizations::123456789012:ou/o-exampleorgid/ou-examplerootid-exampleouid123
  • An ARN of an IAM role, for example: iam::123456789012:role/rolename
  • An ARN of an IAM user, for example: iam::123456789012user/username


Not all resource types can be shared with IAM roles and users. For more information, see Sharing with IAM roles and users in the Resource Access Manager User Guide .



"string" "string" ...

--client-token (string)

Specifies a unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. This lets you safely retry the request without accidentally performing the same operation a second time. Passing the same value to a later call to an operation requires that you also pass the same value for all other parameters. We recommend that you use a UUID type of value. .

If you don't provide this value, then Amazon Web Services generates a random one for you.

If you retry the operation with the same ClientToken , but with different parameters, the retry fails with an IdempotentParameterMismatch error.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To remove a resource from a resource share

The following disassociate-resource-share example removes the specified resource, in this case a VPC subnet, from the specified resource share. Any principals with access to the resource share can no longer perform operations on that resource.

aws ram disassociate-resource-share \
    --resource-arns arn:aws:ec2:us-west-2:123456789012:subnet/subnet-0250c25a1fEXAMPLE \
    --resource-share-arn arn:aws:ram:us-west-2:123456789012:resource-share/7ab63972-b505-7e2a-420d-6f5d3EXAMPLE


    "resourceShareAssociations": [
        "resourceShareArn": "arn:aws:ram:us-west-2:123456789012:resource-share/7ab63972-b505-7e2a-420d-6f5d3EXAMPLE",
        "associatedEntity": "arn:aws:ec2:us-west-2:123456789012:subnet/subnet-0250c25a1fEXAMPLE",
        "associationType": "RESOURCE",
        "status": "DISASSOCIATING",
        "external": false


resourceShareAssociations -> (list)

An array of objects with information about the updated associations for this resource share.


Describes an association between a resource share and either a principal or a resource.

resourceShareArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource share.

resourceShareName -> (string)

The name of the resource share.

associatedEntity -> (string)

The associated entity. This can be either of the following:

  • For a resource association, this is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource.
  • For principal associations, this is one of the following:
    • The ID of an Amazon Web Services account
    • The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an organization in Organizations
    • The ARN of an organizational unit (OU) in Organizations
    • The ARN of an IAM role
    • The ARN of an IAM user

associationType -> (string)

The type of entity included in this association.

status -> (string)

The current status of the association.

statusMessage -> (string)

A message about the status of the association.

creationTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the association was created.

lastUpdatedTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the association was last updated.

external -> (boolean)

Indicates whether the principal belongs to the same organization in Organizations as the Amazon Web Services account that owns the resource share.

clientToken -> (string)

The idempotency identifier associated with this request. If you want to repeat the same operation in an idempotent manner then you must include this value in the clientToken request parameter of that later call. All other parameters must also have the same values that you used in the first call.
