Step 3: Clean up - AWS Cloud9

Step 3: Clean up

(Previous step: Step 2: Basic tour of the IDE)

To prevent ongoing charges to your AWS account related to this tutorial, you should delete the environment.

Warning

Deleting an environment cannot be undone.

Delete the Environment by using the AWS Cloud9 console

  1. To open the dashboard, on the menu bar in the IDE, choose AWS Cloud9, Go To Your Dashboard.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Choose the title inside of the my-demo-environment card, and then choose Delete.

      
                           Deleting an environment in the environment details page
    • Select the my-demo-environment card, and then choose Delete.

      
                           Deleting an environment in the environments list
  3. In the Delete dialog box, enter Delete, and then choose Delete. The delete operation takes a few minutes.

Note

If you followed this tutorial exactly, then the environment was an EC2 environment and AWS Cloud9 also terminates the Amazon EC2 instance that was connected to that environment.

However, if you used an SSH environment instead of following the tutorial, and that environment was connected to an Amazon EC2 instance, AWS Cloud9 doesn't terminate that instance. If you don't terminate that instance later, your AWS account might continue to have ongoing charges for Amazon EC2 related to that instance.
