--identifiers (list)

A list of identifiers for the snapshots that you want to delete.


SnapshotIdentifier -> (string)

The unique identifier of the manual snapshot to be deleted.

Constraints: Must be the name of an existing snapshot that is in the available , failed , or cancelled state.

SnapshotClusterIdentifier -> (string)

The unique identifier of the cluster the snapshot was created from. This parameter is required if your IAM user has a policy containing a snapshot resource element that specifies anything other than * for the cluster name.

Constraints: Must be the name of valid cluster.

Shorthand Syntax:

SnapshotIdentifier=string,SnapshotClusterIdentifier=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "SnapshotIdentifier": "string",
    "SnapshotClusterIdentifier": "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.
