Deleting the Stacks - Standardized Architecture for NIST-based Assurance Frameworks on AWS

Deleting the Stacks

When you’ve finished using the baseline environment, you can delete the stacks. Deleting a stack, either via CLI and APIs or through the AWS CloudFormation console, will remove all the resources created by the template for that stack. The only exceptions are the S3 buckets for logging and backup. By default, the deletion policy for those buckets is set to “Retain,” so you have to delete them manually.


This Quick Start deployment uses nested AWS CloudFormation templates, so deleting the main stack will remove the nested stacks and all associated resources.
