API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Deletes a previously provisioned cluster. DeleteCacheCluster deletes all associated cache nodes, node endpoints and the cluster itself. When you receive a successful response from this operation, Amazon ElastiCache immediately begins deleting the cluster; you cannot cancel or revert this operation.

This operation cannot be used to delete a cluster that is the last read replica of a replication group or node group (shard) that has Multi-AZ mode enabled or a cluster from a Redis (cluster mode enabled) replication group.

Due to current limitations on Redis (cluster mode disabled), this operation or parameter is not supported on Redis (cluster mode enabled) replication groups.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to DeleteCacheClusterAsync.
