Deletes the specified WebACL .
You can only use this if
ManagedByFirewallManager is false in the specified WebACL .
Before deleting any web ACL, first disassociate it from all resources.
To retrieve a list of the resources that are associated with a web ACL, use the following calls:
For regional resources, call ListResourcesForWebACL .
For Amazon CloudFront distributions, use the CloudFront call
ListDistributionsByWebACLId . For information, see ListDistributionsByWebACLId .
To disassociate a resource from a web ACL, use the following calls:
For regional resources, call DisassociateWebACL .
For Amazon CloudFront distributions, provide an empty web ACL ID in the CloudFront call
UpdateDistribution . For information, see UpdateDistribution .

The name of the web ACL. You cannot change the name of a web ACL after you create it.
Specifies whether this is for an Amazon CloudFront distribution or for a regional application. A regional application can be an Application Load Balancer (ALB), an Amazon API Gateway REST API, an AppSync GraphQL API, a Amazon Cognito user pool, or an App Runner service.
To work with CloudFront, you must also specify the Region US East (N. Virginia) as follows:
CLI - Specify the Region when you use the CloudFront scope:
API and SDKs - For all calls, use the Region endpoint us-east-1.
The unique identifier for the web ACL. This ID is returned in the responses to create and list commands. You provide it to operations like update and delete.
A token used for optimistic locking. WAF returns a token to your
listrequests, to mark the state of the entity at the time of the request. To make changes to the entity associated with the token, you provide the token to operations like
delete. WAF uses the token to ensure that no changes have been made to the entity since you last retrieved it. If a change has been made, the update fails with a
WAFOptimisticLockException. If this happens, perform another
get, and use the new token returned by that operation.
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
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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.
Turn on debug logging.
Override command’s default URL with the given URL.
By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.
Disable automatic pagination.
The formatting style for command output.
A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.
Use a specific profile from your credential file.
The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.
Display the version of this tool.
Turn on/off color output.
Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.
The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.
The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob
fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the
cli-binary-format setting. When using
file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured
Disable cli pager for output.
Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.
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 .
To delete a web ACL
delete-web-acl deletes the specified web ACL from your account. A web ACL can only be deleted when it’s not associated with any resources. This call requires an ID, which you can obtain from the call,
list-web-acls, and a lock token, which you can obtain from the call
list-web-acls or the call
aws wafv2 delete-web-acl \ --name test \ --scope REGIONAL \ --id a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111 \ --lock-token ebab4ed2-155e-4c9a-9efb-e4c45665b1f5
This command produces no output.
