Deleting a resource share in AWS RAM - AWS Resource Access Manager

Deleting a resource share in AWS RAM

You can delete a resource share at any time. When you delete a resource share, all principals that were associated with the resource share lose access to the shared resources. Deleting a resource share doesn't delete the shared resources.

To delete an AWS resource

If you need to delete an AWS resource that you included in a resource share, AWS recommends that you first ensure that you either remove the resource from any resource share that includes it, or delete the resource share.

The deleted resource share remains visible in the AWS RAM console for a short period after deletion, but its status changes to Deleted.

To delete a resource share
  1. Open the Shared by me : Resource shares page in the AWS RAM console.

  2. Because AWS RAM resource shares exist in specific AWS Regions, choose the appropriate AWS Region from the dropdown list in the upper-right corner of the console. To see resource shares that contain global resources, you must set the AWS Region to US East (N. Virginia), (us-east-1). For more information about sharing global resources, see Sharing Regional resources compared to global resources.

  3. Select the resource share you want to delete.


    Be sure to select the correct resource share. You can't recover a resource share after you delete it.

  4. Choose Delete, then in the confirmation message, choose Delete.

  5. The deleted resource share disappears after two hours. Until then, it remains visible in the console with a deleted status.

To delete a resource share

You can use the delete-resource-share command to delete a resource share that you no longer need.

The following example first uses the get-resource-shares command to get the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource share that you want to delete. Then it uses delete-resource-share to delete the specified resource share.

$ aws ram get-resource-shares \ --region us-east-1 \ --resource-owner SELF { "resourceShares": [ { "resourceShareArn": "arn:aws:ram:us-east-1:123456789012:resource-share/2ebe77d7-4156-4a93-87a4-228568d04425", "name": "MySubnetShare", "owningAccountId": "123456789012", "allowExternalPrincipals": true, "status": "ACTIVE", "creationTime": "2021-09-10T15:38:54.449000-07:00", "lastUpdatedTime": "2021-09-10T15:38:54.449000-07:00", "featureSet": "STANDARD" } ] } $ aws ram delete-resource-share \ --region us-east-1 \ --resource-share-arn arn:aws:ram:us-east-1:123456789012:resource-share/2ebe77d7-4156-4a93-87a4-228568d04425 { "returnValue": true }
