Uninstall the solution - Serverless Image Handler

Uninstall the solution

You can uninstall the Serverless Image Handler solution from the AWS Management Console, or by using the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). You must manually delete the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets created by this solution. AWS Solutions Implementations do not automatically delete this resource in case you have stored data to retain.

Using the AWS Management Console

  1. Sign in to the AWS CloudFormation console.

  2. On the Stacks page, select the solution stack.

  3. Choose Delete.

Using AWS Command Line Interface

Verify that the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) is available in your environment. For installation instructions, refer to What Is the AWS Command Line Interface in the AWS CLI User Guide. After confirming the AWS CLI is available, run the following command.

$ aws cloudformation delete-stack --stack-name <your-stack-name>

Deleting the Amazon S3 buckets

This solution is configured to retain the solution-created Amazon S3 bucket (for deploying in an opt-in Region) if you decide to delete the AWS CloudFormation stack to prevent against accidental data loss. After uninstalling the solution, you can manually delete this S3 bucket if you do not need to retain the data. Follow these steps to delete the Amazon S3 bucket.

  1. Sign in to the Amazon S3 console.

  2. Choose Buckets from the left navigation pane.

  3. Locate the <stack-name> S3 buckets.

  4. Select the S3 bucket and choose Delete.

To delete the S3 bucket using AWS CLI, run the following command:

$ aws s3 rb s3://<bucket-name> --force

Alternatively, you can configure the AWS CloudFormation template to delete the Amazon S3 bucket automatically. Before deleting the stack, change the deletion behavior in the AWS CloudFormation DeletionPolicy attribute. This will not delete the source bucket you created and provided as a parameter to the CloudFormation template.
