Delete an Application in AWS CodeDeploy

You can use the AWS CodeDeploy console, the AWS CLI, or an AWS CodeDeploy API action to delete applications. For information about using the AWS CodeDeploy API action, see DeleteApplication.


Deleting an application removes information about the application from the AWS CodeDeploy system, including all related deployment group information and deployment details. It does not remove any related application revisions from instances on which the revisions may be installed nor does it delete revisions from Amazon S3 buckets where the revisions may be stored. It also does not terminate any Amazon EC2 instances or deregister any on-premises instances. This action cannot be undone.
