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.

Container for the parameters to the DeleteReplicationGroup operation. Deletes an existing replication group. By default, this operation deletes the entire replication group, including the primary/primaries and all of the read replicas. If the replication group has only one primary, you can optionally delete only the read replicas, while retaining the primary by setting RetainPrimaryCluster=true.

When you receive a successful response from this operation, Amazon ElastiCache immediately begins deleting the selected resources; you cannot cancel or revert this operation.

This operation is valid for Redis only.

public class DeleteReplicationGroupRequest : AmazonElastiCacheRequest

The DeleteReplicationGroupRequest type exposes the following members



Public Property FinalSnapshotIdentifier System.String

Gets and sets the property FinalSnapshotIdentifier.

The name of a final node group (shard) snapshot. ElastiCache creates the snapshot from the primary node in the cluster, rather than one of the replicas; this is to ensure that it captures the freshest data. After the final snapshot is taken, the replication group is immediately deleted.

Public Property ReplicationGroupId System.String

Gets and sets the property ReplicationGroupId.

The identifier for the cluster to be deleted. This parameter is not case sensitive.

Public Property RetainPrimaryCluster System.Boolean

Gets and sets the property RetainPrimaryCluster.

If set to true, all of the read replicas are deleted, but the primary node is retained.


Deletes the Amazon ElastiCache replication group my-redis-rg.


var response = client.DeleteReplicationGroup(new DeleteReplicationGroupRequest 
    ReplicationGroupId = "my-redis-rg",
    RetainPrimaryCluster = false

ReplicationGroup replicationGroup = response.ReplicationGroup;
