Enum RemovalPolicy

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<RemovalPolicy>, java.lang.constant.Constable

@Generated(value="jsii-pacmak/1.84.0 (build 5404dcf)", date="2023-06-19T16:29:55.098Z") @Stability(Stable) public enum RemovalPolicy extends Enum<RemovalPolicy>
Possible values for a resource's Removal Policy.

The removal policy controls what happens to the resource if it stops being managed by CloudFormation. This can happen in one of three situations:

  • The resource is removed from the template, so CloudFormation stops managing it;
  • A change to the resource is made that requires it to be replaced, so CloudFormation stops managing it;
  • The stack is deleted, so CloudFormation stops managing all resources in it.

The Removal Policy applies to all above cases.

Many stateful resources in the AWS Construct Library will accept a removalPolicy as a property, typically defaulting it to RETAIN.

If the AWS Construct Library resource does not accept a removalPolicy argument, you can always configure it by using the escape hatch mechanism, as shown in the following example:

 Bucket bucket;
 CfnResource cfnBucket = (CfnResource)bucket.node.findChild("Resource");


 import software.amazon.awscdk.services.opensearchservice.*;
 GraphqlApi api;
 User user = new User(this, "User");
 Domain domain = Domain.Builder.create(this, "Domain")
 OpenSearchDataSource ds = api.addOpenSearchDataSource("ds", domain);
                 "version", "2017-02-28",
                 "operation", "GET",
                 "path", "/id/post/_search",
                 "params", Map.of(
                         "headers", Map.of(),
                         "queryString", Map.of(),
                         "body", Map.of("from", 0, "size", 50))))))
         .responseMappingTemplate(MappingTemplate.fromString("[\n    #foreach($entry in $context.result.hits.hits)\n    #if( $velocityCount > 1 ) , #end\n    $utils.toJson($entry.get(\"_source\"))\n    #end\n  ]"))
