Deleting Policies

To delete a policy, use the kadmin delete_policy command, which requires the "delete" administrative privilege. The syntax is:

     delete_policy [-force] policy_name

The delete_policy command has the alias delpol. It prompts for confirmation before deletion. For example:

     kadmin: delete_policy guests
     Are you sure you want to delete the policy "guests"?
     (yes/no): yes

Note that you must cancel the policy from all principals before deleting it. The delete_policy command will fail if it is in use by any principals.
