Deletes a cache policy.

You cannot delete a cache policy if it’s attached to a cache behavior. First update your distributions to remove the cache policy from all cache behaviors, then delete the cache policy.

To delete a cache policy, you must provide the policy’s identifier and version. To get these values, you can use ListCachePolicies or GetCachePolicy .

--id (string)

The unique identifier for the cache policy that you are deleting. To get the identifier, you can use ListCachePolicies .

--if-match (string)

The version of the cache policy that you are deleting. The version is the cache policy’s ETag value, which you can get using ListCachePolicies , GetCachePolicy , or GetCachePolicyConfig .

--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.
