Detaching a Block Storage volume via the API

Reviewed on 02 June 2021Published on 10 January 2020

To detach a block volume from a running instance, relaunch the API call and omit the volume you want to hot unplug. Like so:

$ curl -q \
-H "X-Auth-Token: $SECRET_KEY" \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X PATCH \
-d '{
"volumes": {
"0": "7fe25caf-0a68-46a7-aeb9-63a278d33e2b",
}
}' \
