RAM / Client / delete_permission_version



Deletes one version of a customer managed permission. The version you specify must not be attached to any resource share and must not be the default version for the permission.

If a customer managed permission has the maximum of 5 versions, then you must delete at least one version before you can create another.

Request Syntax

response = client.delete_permission_version(
  • permissionArn (string) –


    Specifies the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the permission with the version you want to delete.

  • permissionVersion (integer) –


    Specifies the version number to delete.

    You can’t delete the default version for a customer managed permission.

    You can’t delete a version if it’s the only version of the permission. You must either first create another version, or delete the permission completely.

    You can’t delete a version if it is attached to any resource shares. If the version is the default, you must first use SetDefaultPermissionVersion to set a different version as the default for the customer managed permission, and then use AssociateResourceSharePermission to update your resource shares to use the new default version.

  • clientToken (string) –

    Specifies a unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. This lets you safely retry the request without accidentally performing the same operation a second time. Passing the same value to a later call to an operation requires that you also pass the same value for all other parameters. We recommend that you use a UUID type of value..

    If you don’t provide this value, then Amazon Web Services generates a random one for you.

    If you retry the operation with the same ClientToken, but with different parameters, the retry fails with an IdempotentParameterMismatch error.

Return type:



Response Syntax

    'returnValue': True|False,
    'clientToken': 'string',

Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • returnValue (boolean) –

      A boolean value that indicates whether the operation is successful.

    • clientToken (string) –

      The idempotency identifier associated with this request. If you want to repeat the same operation in an idempotent manner then you must include this value in the clientToken request parameter of that later call. All other parameters must also have the same values that you used in the first call.

    • permissionStatus (string) –

      This operation is performed asynchronously, and this response parameter indicates the current status.
