Step 5: Clean Up

Congratulations! You have successfully deployed a sample application to the AWS Cloud, uploaded a new version, and modified its configuration to add a second Auto Scaling instance. To ensure that you're not charged for any services you aren't using, delete all application versions and terminate the environment. This also deletes the AWS resources that the environment created for you.

To delete the application and all associated resources

  1. Delete all application versions.

    1. Open the Elastic Beanstalk console.

    2. On the Elastic Beanstalk applications page, choose getting-started-app.

    3. In the navigation pane, choose Application versions.

    4. On the Application Versions page, select all application versions that you want to delete, and then choose Delete.

    5. Confirm that you want to delete those versions by choosing Delete.

    6. Choose Done.

  2. Terminate the environment.

    1. Open the environment dashboard by choosing getting-started-app, and then choosing GettingStartedApp-env.

    2. Choose Actions, and then choose Terminate Environment.

    3. Confirm that you want to terminate GettingStartedApp-env by typing the environment name, and then choose Terminate.

  3. Delete the getting-started-app application.

    1. Open the main Elastic Beanstalk dashboard by choosing Elastic Beanstalk in the upper left of the environment dashboard.

    2. On the Elastic Beanstalk applications page, choose Actions for the getting-started-app application, and then choose Delete application.

    3. Confirm that you want to delete getting-started-app by typing the application name, and then choose Delete.
