Permanently deletes a RegexMatchSet. You can’t delete a RegexMatchSet if it’s still used in any Rules or if it still includes any RegexMatchTuples objects (any filters).

If you just want to remove a RegexMatchSet from a Rule, use UpdateRule.

To permanently delete a RegexMatchSet, perform the following steps:

  • Update the RegexMatchSet to remove filters, if any. For more information, see UpdateRegexMatchSet.

  • Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of a DeleteRegexMatchSet request.

  • Submit a DeleteRegexMatchSet request.
