Delete ACM–Managed Certificates

You can use the ACM console or the AWS CLI to delete a certificate.

Delete Certificates (Console)

In the list of certificates, select the check box for the ACM Certificate that you want to delete. For Actions, choose Delete.


You cannot delete an ACM Certificate that is being used by another AWS service. To delete a certificate that is in use, you must first remove the certificate association.

Delete Certificates (CLI)

You can use the delete-certificate command list the metadata for a certificate.

aws acm delete-certificate --certificate-arn arn:aws:acm:region:123456789012:certificate/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012
