Delete Groups from AWS Resource Groups

You can use the Resource Groups console or the AWS CLI to delete resource groups from AWS Resource Groups. Deleting a resource group does not delete the resources that are members of the group or tags on member resources. It deletes only the group structure and any group-level tags.

To delete resource groups (AWS Management Console)

  1. From the Resource Groups drop-down menu on the AWS home page, choose Saved Resource Groups.

  2. Choose the resource group that you want to delete.

  3. On the group's detail page, choose Delete.

                    Delete a resource group.
  4. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, choose Delete.

To delete resource groups (AWS CLI)

  1. Type the following command, replacing resource_group_name with the name of your group, and then press Enter.

    aws resource-groups delete-group --group-name resource_group_name
  2. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, type yes, and then press Enter.
