Deletes a prefix list and all entries in the prefix list.


If a prefix list is associated with resources, you cannot delete the prefix list. You must disassociate the prefix list from the resources before you can delete the prefix list. You can call the DescribePrefixListAssociations operation to query resources that are associated with a specific prefix list.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
