Step 7 (optional): Clean up resources

You can continue using the vehicle-registration ledger. However, if you no longer need it, you should delete it.

If deletion protection is enabled for your ledger, you must first disable it before you can delete the ledger using the QLDB API or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). The QLDB console disables deletion protection for you when you use it to delete a ledger.

To delete the ledger

  1. Open the Amazon QLDB console at

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Ledgers.

  3. In the list of ledgers, select vehicle-registration.

  4. Choose Delete ledger. Confirm this by entering vehicle-registration in the field provided.

  5. If deletion protection is enabled for this ledger, you must also choose the option to Override deletion protection.
