Deleting views in Resource Explorer - AWS Resource Explorer

Deleting views in Resource Explorer

When you no longer need an AWS Resource Explorer view, you can delete it. You can delete views by using the AWS Management Console or by running AWS CLI commands or their equivalent API operations in an AWS SDK.


You can't delete a view that is currently designated as the default for its AWS Region. To delete the view, you must remove the view as the default. To do this, you can run the DisassociateDefaultView API operation in that Region.

Minimum permissions

To run this procedure, you must have the following permissions:

  • Action: resource-explorer-2:DeleteView

    Resource: The ARN of the view to delete
