as-terminate-instance-in-auto-scaling-group - Terminates a given instance.
as-terminate-instance-in-auto-scaling-group InstanceId --decrement-desired-capacity/no-decrement-desired-capacity [General Options]
Terminates a given instance. If specified with --decrement-desired-capacity, the value of desired capacity will be reduced by 1 when the instance is terminated. If specified with --no-decrement-desired-capacity, the value of desired capacity will not change and Auto Scaling will launch a replacement instance.
InstanceId ID of the instance to be terminated. You can also set this value using "--instance". Required.
-d, --decrement-desired-capacity, -D, --no-decrement-desired-capacity Specify only one of the two flags. If set, desired capacity is decremented by 1 when we terminate this instance. Otherwise, a new instance will be launched to compensate for the termination of this instance. Required. -f, --force Forces the terminate action to go through without prompting. By default, the terminate command will prompt.
--aws-credential-file VALUE Location of the file with your AWS credentials. This value can be set by using the environment variable 'AWS_CREDENTIAL_FILE'. -C, --ec2-cert-file-path VALUE Path to the file holding the X.509 certificate. This value can be set by using the environment variable 'EC2_CERT'. --connection-timeout VALUE Connection timeout (in seconds). The default value is '30'. --delimiter VALUE The delimiter to use when displaying delimited (long) results. -H, --headers For displaying tabular or delimited results, it includes the column headers. For displaying XML results, it returns the HTTP headers from the service request, if applicable. This is off by default. -I, --access-key-id VALUE The AWS access ID to use. -K, --ec2-private-key-file-path VALUE Path to the file holding the X.509 private key. This value can be set by using the environment variable 'EC2_PRIVATE_KEY'. --region VALUE Amazon EC2 region to use.

The default is to not show empty fields or columns. --show-request Displays the URL the tools used to call the AWS Service. The default value is 'false'. --show-table, --show-long, --show-xml, --quiet The way in which the results are displayed: tabular, delimited (long), XML or no output (quiet). Tabular shows a subset of the data in fixed column-width form, while long shows all of the returned values delimited by a character, XML is the raw return from the service and quiet suppresses all standard output. The default is tabular, or 'show-table'. -U, --url VALUE This option will override the URL for the service call with VALUE. This value can be set by using the environment variable 'AWS_AUTO_SCALING_URL'.
Terminates instance 'i-1' and decrements group size. $PROMPT> as-terminate-instance-in-auto-scaling-group i-1 --decrement-desired-capacity Terminates instance 'i-2' but does not decrement the group size. $PROMPT> as-terminate-instance-in-auto-scaling-group i-2 --no-decrement-desired-capacity
