Terminate a stack or resource group

When you request early termination, the system may generate a change request. Cloud administrators configure whether the system generates change requests for the terminate action.

Before you begin

Role required: cloud_user, cloud operator, or cloud_admin

About this task

Note: Terminating a stack or resource group results in the loss of all data and configuration that is associated with the affected resources. Before terminating, be sure to back up any data that you want to keep.

Procedure

  1. Open the list of stacks or resource groups:
    • Amazon AWS Cloud > Managed Resources > Stacks.
    • Microsoft Azure Cloud > Managed Resources > Resource Groups.
  2. Select the stack or resource group to terminate. You can terminate a stack or resource group with Resource Group status of Succeeded.
    Note: You cannot terminate a stack or resource group that has an open change request (Update in progress, Delete in progress, and so on).
  3. Click the Terminate Stack or Terminate Resource Group related link.
    If the action is subject to change control, a pop-up window advises you that change control is required and asks whether to proceed. If the action is not subject to change control, the system immediately triggers the termination workflow.

What to do next

The following information appears when the stack or resource group has been terminated:

  • Resource Group Status - Deleted
  • Status - Retired

The following information appears when termination fails:

  • Resource Group Status - Delete Failed
  • Status - Pending Repair
