You can delete a group that you no longer need.
For information about the permissions that you need in order to delete a group, see Permissions for Administering IAM Users, Groups, and Credentials.
When you use the AWS Management Console to delete a group, IAM deletes the group and any associated policies, but leaves the users intact. Permissions the users had because they belonged to the group no longer apply to them.
To use the AWS Management Console to delete a group
Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the IAM console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/.
In the navigation pane, click Groups, and then select the group name.
From the Group Actions list, select Delete Group, and then click Yes, Delete.
When you use the IAM CLI or API to remove the group, you must remove the users and policies before you can remove the group. Follow these steps:
Remove all users from the group.
Delete all policies attached to the group.
Delete the group.
