Removes a member of the cloud account type. After you remove a member of the cloud account type, the member is no longer managed by the management account of the resource directory to which the member belonged.

Usage notes

In a resource directory, members of the resource account type are resource containers that are created by using the management account of the resource directory. You cannot remove such members from the resource directory. For security purposes, you can use these members only within the resource directory.

In this example, the member 177242285274**** is removed.
