Deletes all versions of a bot, including the Draft version. To delete a specific version, use the DeleteBotVersion operation.

When you delete a bot, all of the resources contained in the bot are also deleted. Deleting a bot removes all locales, intents, slot, and slot types defined for the bot.

If a bot has an alias, the DeleteBot operation returns a ResourceInUseException exception. If you want to delete the bot and the alias, set the skipResourceInUseCheck parameter to true .
