Delete Atlan Deployment

How to delete the Atlan deployment from your AWS VPC

STEP 1: Delete the Atlan stack

  1. Log into your AWS account.

  2. Go to CloudFormation, then go to Stacks.

  3. Choose the name of the stack you want to delete, then click "Delete".

Select Stack

๐Ÿ‘€ Note: It will take 15-20 minutes to perform the delete process. In most cases, this will not delete your two AWS services (VPC and S3 bucket) โ€” these will have to be deleted manually. See the steps below.

STEP 2: Delete the S3 bucket from the AWS console

  1. Go to your S3 console

  2. There should be two buckets available for the stack. Select one of the two buckets. (The bucket name will be the stack name plus a random number.)

  3. Click on "Empty".

Empty Button
  1. Another window will appear for confirmation. Type "permanently delete" in the box, and click on the "Empty" button.

Delete Confirmation
  1. Repeat the same process for other bucket.

  2. Delete both of the buckets from the console.

STEP 3: Delete the VPC from the AWS console

  1. After deleting the S3 bucket, go to the VPC section.

  2. Select the VPC that needs to be delete. (You can find the VPC ID in the stack output section, as shown below.)

  1. Delete the VPC from the VPC console.

Delete VPC
  1. Check all the in-user interfaces.

Interface Information

๐Ÿ‘€ Note: Sometimes this will show network interface dependencies that are in use. Remove these manually by searching for different services with the interface ID in each section. These dependencies can include:

  • VPC peering

  • Transit gateway

  • VPN connection

  • Load balancers that exist with the same VPC

  • Lambda functional interfaces

  1. After removing all the interfaces manually, you can delete the VPC.

STEP 4: Delete the Atlan stack again

After deleting the VPC, you can now remove the stack again. This time, it will be removed with all the resources.
