DeleteWorkforce - Amazon SageMaker


Use this operation to delete a workforce.

If you want to create a new workforce in an AWS Region where a workforce already exists, use this operation to delete the existing workforce and then use CreateWorkforce to create a new workforce.


If a private workforce contains one or more work teams, you must use the DeleteWorkteam operation to delete all work teams before you delete the workforce. If you try to delete a workforce that contains one or more work teams, you will receive a ResourceInUse error.
