Deleting or Disabling a CloudWatch Events Rule

Note

Amazon EventBridge is the preferred way to manage your events. CloudWatch Events and EventBridge are the same underlying service and API, but EventBridge provides more features. Changes you make in either CloudWatch or EventBridge will appear in each console. For more information, see Amazon EventBridge.

Use the following steps to delete or disable a CloudWatch Events rule.

To delete or disable a rule

  1. Open the CloudWatch console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudwatch/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Rules.

    Managed rules have a box icon next to their names. For more information, see Amazon CloudWatch Events Managed Rules.

  3. Do one of the following:

    1. To delete a rule, select the button next to the rule and choose Actions, Delete, Delete.

      If the rule is a managed rule, you must type the name of the rule to acknowledge that it is a managed rule, and that deleting it may stop functionality in the service that created the rule. To continue, type the rule name and choose Force delete.

    2. To temporarily disable a rule, select the button next to the rule and choose Actions, Disable, Disable.

      You cannot disable a managed rule.
