Deleting a resource - Cloud Control API

Deleting a resource

Use the delete-resource command to delete an existing resource. You can delete the resource whether or not the resource was originally provisioned using Cloud Control API.

Important

We strongly advise against using Cloud Control API to delete resources that are under active management by other services. Doing socan lead to unexpected results. For example, do not use Cloud Control API to delete resources that are currently part of an AWS CloudFormation stack.

To update an existing resource, you must specify the resource's identifier. For more information about finding a resource's identifier, see Identifying a resource.

The following example deletes an AWS::Logs::LogGroup resource with the name of CloudControlApiLogGroup.

aws cloudcontrol delete-resource --type-name AWS::Logs::LogGroup --identifier CloudControlApiLogGroup

Tracking the progress of a delete resource request

The delete-resource command returns a ProgressEvent object that you can use to track the current status of your resource operation request. For more information, see Tracking the progress of resource requests.
