Use DeleteGroupPolicy with an Amazon SDK or command line tool

The following code examples show how to use DeleteGroupPolicy.

Action examples are code excerpts from larger programs and must be run in context. You can see this action in context in the following code example:

Amazon SDK for .NET

/// <summary> /// Delete an IAM policy associated with an IAM group. /// </summary> /// <param name="groupName">The name of the IAM group associated with the /// policy.</param> /// <param name="policyName">The name of the policy to delete.</param> /// <returns>A Boolean value indicating the success of the action.</returns> public async Task<bool> DeleteGroupPolicyAsync(string groupName, string policyName) { var request = new DeleteGroupPolicyRequest() { GroupName = groupName, PolicyName = policyName, }; var response = await _IAMService.DeleteGroupPolicyAsync(request); return response.HttpStatusCode == System.Net.HttpStatusCode.OK; }
Amazon CLI

To delete a policy from an IAM group

The following delete-group-policy command deletes the policy named ExamplePolicy from the group named Admins.

aws iam delete-group-policy \ --group-name Admins \ --policy-name ExamplePolicy

This command produces no output.

To see the policies attached to a group, use the list-group-policies command.

For more information, see Managing IAM policies in the Amazon IAM User Guide.

Tools for PowerShell

Example 1: This example removes the inline policy named TesterPolicy from the IAM group Testers. The users in that group immediately lose the permissions defined in that policy.

Remove-IAMGroupPolicy -GroupName Testers -PolicyName TestPolicy
