Deleting a Lifecycle Configuration

You can delete a lifecycle configuration from a bucket to delete all its rules.

Deleting a Lifecycle Configuration Using AWS CLI

To delete the lifecycle configuration from a bucket, use the delete-bucket-lifecycle command following this syntax:

Request sample
$ aws s3api delete-bucket-lifecycle \
    --profile YOUR_PROFILE \
    --bucket BUCKET \

This command contains the following attributes that you need to specify:

  • (optional) profile: The named profile you want to use, created when configuring AWS CLI. For more information, see Installing and Configuring AWS CLI.

  • bucket: The name of the bucket whose lifecycle configuration you want to delete.

  • endpoint: The endpoint corresponding to the Region you want to send the request to.

The lifecycle configuration is deleted from the bucket and its rules are no longer applied.
