[ aws . ssm-contacts ]



To no longer receive engagements on a contact channel, you can delete the channel from a contact. Deleting the contact channel removes it from the contact’s engagement plan. If you delete the only contact channel for a contact, you won’t be able to engage that contact during an incident.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--contact-channel-id <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--contact-channel-id (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the contact channel.

--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.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .
