[ aws . route53 ]



Deletes a traffic policy.

When you delete a traffic policy, Route 53 sets a flag on the policy to indicate that it has been deleted. However, Route 53 never fully deletes the traffic policy. Note the following:

  • Deleted traffic policies aren’t listed if you run ListTrafficPolicies .

  • There’s no way to get a list of deleted policies.

  • If you retain the ID of the policy, you can get information about the policy, including the traffic policy document, by running GetTrafficPolicy .

--id <value>
--traffic-policy-version <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--id (string)

The ID of the traffic policy that you want to delete.

--traffic-policy-version (integer)

The version number of the traffic policy that you want to delete.

--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.
