Deleting an EIM Access Key

You can delete an access key associated with a user, for example to remove their access to your resources. The access key can be in the Active or Inactive state.

You can use this action for access keys associated with the root user. Therefore, you can use it to manage root credentials even if the OUTSCALE account has no associated EIM users.
