[ aws . memorydb ]



Deletes a cluster. It also deletes all associated nodes and node endpoints

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--cluster-name <value>
[--final-snapshot-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--cluster-name (string)

The name of the cluster to be deleted

--final-snapshot-name (string)

The user-supplied name of a final cluster snapshot. This is the unique name that identifies the snapshot. MemoryDB creates the snapshot, and then deletes the cluster immediately afterward.

--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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

CreateTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the node was created.

Endpoint -> (structure)

The hostname for connecting to this node.

Address -> (string)

The DNS hostname of the node.

Port -> (integer)

The port number that the engine is listening on.

NumberOfNodes -> (integer)

The number of nodes in the shard

AvailabilityMode -> (string)

Indicates if the cluster has a Multi-AZ configuration (multiaz) or not (singleaz).

The cluster’s configuration endpoint

Address -> (string)

The DNS hostname of the node.

Port -> (integer)

The port number that the engine is listening on.

NodeType -> (string)

The cluster’s node type

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the SNS notification topic

SnsTopicStatus -> (string)

The SNS topic must be in Active status to receive notifications
