Step 11: Delete Walkthrough Resources

After you have completed this walkthrough, perform the following steps to avoid being charged further for AWS resources used in the walkthrough. It's necessary that you do the steps in order, because some resources cannot be deleted if they have a dependency upon another resource.

To delete AWS DMS resources

  1. On the navigation pane, choose Tasks, choose your migration task (migratehrschema), and then choose Delete.

  2. On the navigation pane, choose Endpoints, choose the Oracle source endpoint (orasource), and then choose Delete.

  3. Choose the Amazon Aurora MySQL target endpoint (aurtarget), and then choose Delete.

  4. On the navigation pane, choose Replication instances, choose the replication instance (DMSdemo-repserver), and then choose Delete.

Next, you must delete your AWS CloudFormation stack, DMSdemo.

To delete your AWS CloudFormation stack

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS CloudFormation console at

    Note that if you are signed in as an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user, you must have the appropriate permissions to access AWS CloudFormation.

  2. Choose your CloudFormation stack, DMSdemo.

  3. For Actions, choose Delete stack.

The status of the stack changes to DELETE_IN_PROGRESS while AWS CloudFormation cleans up the resources associated with the DMSdemo stack. When AWS CloudFormation is finished cleaning up resources, it removes the stack from the list.
