Operation Description

  • DeletePublicIpAddressPool 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 ListPublicIpAddressPools operation to query the status of the task.

    • If the IP address pool is in the Deleting state, the IP address pool is being deleted. In this state. you can only query the IP address pool and cannot perform other operations.
    • If you cannot query the IP address pool, the IP address pool is deleted.
  • You cannot repeatedly call the DeletePublicIpAddressPool operation to delete an IP address pool 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.
