Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Items": ["string", ...]

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To remove tags from a CloudFront distribution

The following example removes two tags from a CloudFront distribution by using command line arguments:

aws cloudfront untag-resource \
    --resource arn:aws:cloudfront::123456789012:distribution/EDFDVBD6EXAMPLE \
    --tag-keys Items=Name,Project

Instead of using command line arguments, you can provide the tag keys in a JSON file, as shown in the following example:

aws cloudfront untag-resource \
    --resource arn:aws:cloudfront::123456789012:distribution/EDFDVBD6EXAMPLE \
    --tag-keys file://tag-keys.json

The file tag-keys.json is a JSON document in the current folder that contains the following:

    "Items": [

When successful, this command has no output.
