DeleteAccessKey - AWS Identity and Access Management
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

DeleteAccessKey

Deletes the access key pair associated with the specified IAM user.

If you do not specify a user name, IAM determines the user name implicitly based on the Amazon access key ID signing the request. This operation works for access keys under the Amazon account. Consequently, you can use this operation to manage Amazon account root user credentials even if the Amazon account has no associated users.
