Elastic IP Address:ReleaseEipSegmentAddress

Last Updated:Jul 10, 2024

Releases contiguous elastic IP addresses (EIPs).

Operation description

  • After you call the ReleaseEipSegmentAddress operation, all EIPs in the specified group are released.

  • ReleaseEipSegmentAddress is an asynchronous operation. After a request is sent, the system returns a request ID and runs the task in the background. You can call the DescribeEipSegment operation to query the status of the task.

    • If the group is in the Releasing state, EIPs in the group are being released. In this state, you can only query the group and cannot perform other operations.
    • If you cannot query the group of contiguous EIPs, the contiguous EIPs are released.
  • You cannot repeatedly call the ReleaseEipSegmentAddress operation to release a group of contiguous EIPs within the specified period of time.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer.

Authorization information

Request parameters
