Deletes a virtual interface.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--virtual-interface-id <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--virtual-interface-id (string)

The ID of the virtual interface.

--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 delete a virtual interface

The following delete-virtual-interface command deletes the specified virtual interface:

aws directconnect delete-virtual-interface --virtual-interface-id dxvif-ffhhk74f


    "virtualInterfaceState": "deleting"


virtualInterfaceState -> (string)

The state of the virtual interface. The following are the possible values:

  • confirming : The creation of the virtual interface is pending confirmation from the virtual interface owner. If the owner of the virtual interface is different from the owner of the connection on which it is provisioned, then the virtual interface will remain in this state until it is confirmed by the virtual interface owner.

  • verifying : This state only applies to public virtual interfaces. Each public virtual interface needs validation before the virtual interface can be created.

  • pending : A virtual interface is in this state from the time that it is created until the virtual interface is ready to forward traffic.

  • available : A virtual interface that is able to forward traffic.

  • down : A virtual interface that is BGP down.

  • deleting : A virtual interface is in this state immediately after calling DeleteVirtualInterface until it can no longer forward traffic.

  • deleted : A virtual interface that cannot forward traffic.

  • rejected : The virtual interface owner has declined creation of the virtual interface. If a virtual interface in the Confirming state is deleted by the virtual interface owner, the virtual interface enters the Rejected state.

  • unknown : The state of the virtual interface is not available.
