DeleteDeployment - AWS IoT Greengrass


Deletes a deployment. To delete an active deployment, you must first cancel it. For more information, see CancelDeployment.

Deleting a deployment doesn't affect core devices that run that deployment, because core devices store the deployment's configuration on the device. Additionally, core devices can roll back to a previous deployment that has been deleted.
