[ aws . eks ]



Delete an Amazon EKS add-on.

When you remove the add-on, it will also be deleted from the cluster. You can always manually start an add-on on the cluster using the Kubernetes API.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--cluster-name <value>
--addon-name <value>
[--preserve | --no-preserve]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--cluster-name (string)

The name of the cluster to delete the add-on from.

--addon-name (string)

The name of the add-on. The name must match one of the names returned by ` ListAddons https://docs.aws.amazon.com/eks/latest/APIReference/API_ListAddons.html`__ .

--preserve | --no-preserve (boolean)

Specifying this option preserves the add-on software on your cluster but Amazon EKS stops managing any settings for the add-on. If an IAM account is associated with the add-on, it is not removed.

--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.
