Deleting a replication instance - AWS Database Migration Service

Deleting a replication instance

You can delete an AWS DMS replication instance when you are finished using it. If you have migration tasks that use the replication instance, you must stop and delete the tasks before deleting the replication instance.

If you close your AWS account, all AWS DMS resources and configurations associated with your account are deleted after two days. These resources include all replication instances, source and target endpoint configuration, replication tasks, and SSL certificates. If after two days you decide to use AWS DMS again, you recreate the resources you need.

To delete a replication instance, use the AWS console.
