Deleting an Environment in AWS Cloud9

To prevent ongoing charges to your AWS account related to an AWS Cloud9 development environment that you're no longer using, you should delete the environment.

  1. Open the AWS Cloud9 console, if it isn't already open, at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloud9/.

  2. In the top navigation bar, choose the AWS Region where the environment is located.

  3. In the list of environments, for the environment you want to delete, do one of the following:

    • Choose the title of the card for the environment. Then choose Delete on the next page.

      
                     Deleting an environment from the environment details page
    • Select the card for the environment, and then choose the Delete button.

  4. In the Delete dialog box, type Delete, and then choose Delete.

  5. If the environment was an SSH environment, AWS Cloud9 leaves behind a hidden subdirectory on the Amazon EC2 instance or your own server that was connected to that environment. You can now safely delete that subdirectory if you want to. The subdirectory is named .c9. It is located in the Environment path directory that you specified when you created the environment.

    If your environment is not displayed in the console, try doing one or more of the following actions to try to display it:

    • In the side navigation bar, choose one or more of the following:

      • Choose Your environments to display all environments that your AWS entity owns within the selected AWS Region and AWS account.

      • Choose Shared with you to display all environments your AWS entity has been invited to within the selected AWS Region and AWS account.

      • Choose Account environments to display all environments within the selected AWS Region and AWS account that your AWS entity has permissions to display.

    • Choose the previous arrow, next arrow, or page number button to display more environments in the current scope.

    • If you think you should be a member of an environment, but the environment is not displayed in the Shared with you list, check with the environment owner.

    • In the top navigation bar, choose a different AWS Region.
