Virtual Private Cloud:DeleteSnatEntry

Last Updated:Dec 06, 2023

Deletes an SNAT entry.

Operation Description

DeleteSnatEntry is an asynchronous operation. After you make a request, the ID of the request is returned but the specified SNAT entry is not deleted. The system deletes the SNAT entry in the background. You can call the DescribeSnatTableEntries operation to query the status of SNAT entries.

  • If the SNAT entries are in the Deleting state, the system is deleting the SNAT entries. In this case, you can only query the status of the SNAT entries, and cannot perform other operations.
  • If no SNAT entry is returned in the response, the SNAT entry is deleted.

If some SNAT entries are in the Pending state, you cannot delete these SNAT entries.


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.

The ID of the SNAT table to which the SNAT entry belongs.


The ID of the SNAT entry that you want to delete.


The client token that is used to ensure the idempotence of the request.

You can use the client to generate the value, but you must make sure that it is unique among different requests. The client token can contain only ASCII characters.
