Deletes a flow log.

Usage notes

  • The DeleteFlowLog operation is asynchronous. After you send the request, the system returns a request ID. However, the operation is still being performed in the system background. You can call the DescribeFlowLogs operation to query the status of a flow log:
    • If the flow log is in the Deleting state, the flow log is being deleted.
    • If you cannot query the flow log, the flow log is deleted.
  • You cannot repeatedly call the DeleteFlowLog operation to delete a flow log 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. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
