Delete EC2 Image Builder resources - EC2 Image Builder

Delete EC2 Image Builder resources

Your Image Builder environment, just like your home, needs regular maintenance to help you find what you need, and complete your tasks without wading through clutter. Make sure to regularly clean up temporary resources that you created for testing. Otherwise, you might forget about those resources, and then later, not remember what they were used for. By then, it might not be clear if you can safely get rid of them.

Deleting resources does not delete any Amazon EC2 AMIs or Amazon ECR container images that are created during the image build process. You must clean those up separately, using the appropriate Amazon EC2 or Amazon ECR console actions, or API or AWS CLI commands.

Tip

To prevent dependency errors when you delete resources, make sure to delete your resources in the following order:

  1. Image pipeline

  2. Image recipe

  3. All remaining resources

Delete resources using the AWS Management Console

To delete an image pipeline and its resources, follow these steps:

Delete the pipeline

  1. To see a list of the build pipelines created under your account, choose Image pipelines from the navigation pane.

  2. Select the check box next to Pipeline name to select the pipeline that you want to delete.

  3. At the top of the Image pipelines panel, on the Actions menu, choose Delete.

  4. To confirm the deletion, enter Delete in the box, and choose Delete.

Delete the recipe

  1. To see a list of the recipes created under your account, choose Image recipes from the navigation pane.

  2. Select the check box next to Recipe name to select the recipe that you want to delete.

  3. At the top of the Image recipes panel, on the Actions menu, choose Delete recipe.

  4. To confirm the deletion, enter Delete in the box, and choose Delete.

Delete infrastructure configuration

  1. To see a list of the infrastructure configurations created under your account, choose Infrastructure configuration from the navigation pane.

  2. Select the check box next to Configuration name to select the infrastructure configuration that you want to delete.

  3. At the top of the Infrastructure configurations panel, choose Delete.

  4. To confirm the deletion, enter Delete in the box, and choose Delete.

Delete distribution settings

  1. To see a list of the distribution settings created under your account, choose Distribution settings from the navigation pane.

  2. Select the check box next to Configuration name to select the distribution settings that you created for this tutorial.

  3. At the top of the Distribution settings panel, choose Delete.

  4. To confirm the deletion, enter Delete in the box, and choose Delete.

Delete an image

  1. To see a list of the images created under your account, choose Images from the navigation pane.

  2. Choose the image Version for the image that you want to remove. This opens the Image build versions page.

  3. Select the check box next to the Version for any image that you want to delete. You can select more than one image version at a time.

  4. At the top of the Image build versions panel, choose Delete version.

  5. To confirm the deletion, enter Delete in the box, and choose Delete.

Delete an image pipeline using the AWS CLI

The following examples show how to delete Image Builder resources using the AWS CLI. As mentioned previously, resources must be deleted in the following order to avoid dependency errors:

  1. Image pipeline

  2. Image recipe

  3. All remaining resources

Delete image pipeline (AWS CLI)

The following example shows how to delete an image pipeline by specifying its ARN.

aws imagebuilder delete-image-pipeline --image-pipeline-arn arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:image-pipeline/my-example-pipeline

Delete image recipe (AWS CLI)

The following example shows how to delete an image recipe by specifying its ARN.

aws imagebuilder delete-image-recipe --image-recipe-arn arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:image-recipe/my-example-recipe/2019.12.03

Delete an infrastructure configuration

The following example shows how to delete an infrastructure configuration resource by specifying its ARN.

aws imagebuilder delete-infrastructure-configuration --infrastructure-configuration-arn arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:infrastructure-configuration/my-example-infrastructure-configuration

Delete distribution settings

The following example shows how to delete a distribution settings resource by specifying its ARN.

aws imagebuilder delete-distribution-configuration --distribution-configuration-arn arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:distribution-configuration/my-example-distribution-configuration

Delete an image

The following example shows how to delete an image build version by specifying its ARN.

aws imagebuilder delete-image --image-build-version-arn arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:image/my-example-image/2019.12.02/1

Delete a component

The following example shows how to use an imagebuilder CLI command to delete a component build version by specifying its ARN.

aws imagebuilder delete-component --component-build-version-arn arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:component/my-example-component/2019.12.02/1
Important

Make sure there are no recipes that reference the component build version in any way before you delete it. Failing to do so could cause pipeline failures.
