The DeleteDBInstance action deletes a previously provisioned DB instance. When you
delete a DB instance, all automated backups for that instance are deleted and can't
be recovered. Manual DB snapshots of the DB instance to be deleted by
are not deleted.
If you request a final DB snapshot the status of the Amazon RDS DB instance is
until the DB snapshot is created. The API action
used to monitor the status of this operation. The action can't be canceled or reverted
Note that when a DB instance is in a failure state and has a status of
incompatible-network, you can only
delete it when the
SkipFinalSnapshot parameter is set to
If the specified DB instance is part of an Amazon Aurora DB cluster, you can't delete the DB instance if both of the following conditions are true:
The DB cluster is a Read Replica of another Amazon Aurora DB cluster.
The DB instance is the only instance in the DB cluster.
To delete a DB instance in this case, first call the PromoteReadReplicaDBCluster
API action to promote the DB cluster so it's no longer a Read Replica. After the promotion
completes, then call the
DeleteDBInstance API action to delete the final
instance in the DB cluster.
For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to DeleteDBInstanceAsync.
