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


--stack-id (string)

The stack ID.

--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 stack

The following example deletes a specified stack, which is identified by its stack ID. You can obtain a stack ID by clicking Stack Settings on the AWS OpsWorks console or by running the describe-stacks command.

Note: Before deleting a layer, you must use delete-app, delete-instance, and delete-layer to delete all of the stack’s apps, instances, and layers.

aws opsworks delete-stack --region us-east-1 --stack-id 154a9d89-7e9e-433b-8de8-617e53756c84

Output: None.
