Deleting an AWS CloudFormation Stack and an Amazon EBS Volume for Live Streaming

When your live event is over, delete the stack that you created for live streaming. This deletes most of the AWS resources that were created for your live-streaming event, and stops most of the AWS charges for the resources. In addition, delete the Amazon EBS volume that is created by AWS CloudFormation but is not deleted when you delete the stack. This stops the rest of the AWS charges for the resources.

To delete an AWS CloudFormation stack and an Amazon EBS volume for live streaming

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS CloudFormation console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/.

  2. Find the AWS CloudFormation stack that you created for live streaming, and make note of the creation time. This will help you identify the Amazon EBS volume that you'll delete later in this procedure.

  3. Select the stack, and click Delete Stack.

  4. Click Yes, Delete to confirm.

  5. To track the progress of the stack deletion, select the stack, and click the Events tab in the bottom frame.

  6. Navigate to the Amazon EC2 console.

  7. In the navigation pane, click Volumes.

  8. Select the volume that the AWS CloudFormation stack created, click Actions, and click Delete Volume.

    If you have multiple Amazon EBS volumes, use the date and time that you made note of in step 2 to locate the volume that the AWS CloudFormation stack created.

  9. If you don't plan to use live streaming again soon, you can cancel your subscription to Adobe Media Server on AWS Marketplace. To cancel the subscription, go to your subscriptions page on AWS Marketplace, find the row for Adobe Media Server, click Cancel Subscription, and follow the on-screen prompts.
