Deletes a WorkforcePoolSubject. Subject must not already be in a deleted state. A WorkforcePoolSubject is automatically created the first time an external credential is exchanged for a Google Cloud credential with a mapped google.subject attribute. There is no path to manually create WorkforcePoolSubjects. Once deleted, the WorkforcePoolSubject may not be used for 30 days. After 30 days, the WorkforcePoolSubject will be deleted forever and can be reused in token exchanges with Google Cloud STS. This will automatically create a new WorkforcePoolSubject that is independent of the previously deleted WorkforcePoolSubject with the same google.subject value.
