Parameter Description

The default output format is the one you specified when using the psm setup command to configure the psm CLI.

-wc|--wait-until-complete true|false

(Optional) A boolean value that, when set to true, makes the command behave synchronously; that is, it does not return until the submitted job is complete. The following message is displayed until the job is complete:
Waiting for the job to complete... (it cannot be cancelled)
Default: false


$ psm jcs delete-backup -s Example1Instance -b 1461867758288 -of json
Job ID : 34325

Note that this command returned a job ID. To see the status of your delete-backup operation, use this ID with the psm jcs operation-status command:

$ psm jcs operation-status -j 34325 -of json

When you see the message:


the backup was successfully deleted.
