Parameters

Parameter Description
TARGET The alias of a configured HPE Ezmeral Object Store deployment from which the command removes buckets. This parameter is mandatory. To remove buckets from a remote cluster/fabric in the global namespace use the format <fabricname>-<bucketname> instead of only the <bucketname> after the alias, that is <alias>/<fabricname>-<clustername>.When bucketname is mentioned without the fabric name, Data Fabric checks the local cluster for the specified bucketname.
force Deletes a non-empty bucket forcefully. This option first empties the bucket and then deletes it.
CAUTION: With this option, a bucket may or may not be deleted if object uploads are in-progress to the same bucket.
dangerous Removes all buckets from the target.
json Enable JSON formatted output.
debug Enable output for debugging.
insecure Disable SSL verification.
help Show this help.
