Virtual Private Cloud:DeleteFlowLog

Last Updated:Dec 02, 2023

Deletes a flow log.

Operation Description

  • 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.


You can run this interface directly in OpenAPI Explorer, saving you the trouble of calculating signatures. After running successfully, OpenAPI Explorer can automatically generate SDK code samples.
