{{{ "title": "Remove Public IP Address", "date": "11-23-2014", "author": "Bryan Friedman", "attachments": [] }}}

Releases the given public IP address of a server so that it is no longer associated with the server and available to be claimed again by another server. Calls to this operation must include a token acquired from the authentication endpoint. See the Login API for information on acquiring this token.

When to Use It

Use this API operation when you want to stop using a specific public IP address on an existing server.

AccountAlias string Short code for a particular account Yes
ServerId string ID of the server being queried. Retrieved from query to containing group, or by looking at the URL when viewing a server in the Control Portal. Yes
PublicIP string The specific public IP to return details about. A server may have more than one public IP, and the list of available ones can be retrieved from the call to Get Server. Yes
