pulumi state delete

Deletes a resource from a stack’s state


Deletes a resource from a stack’s state

This command deletes a resource from a stack’s state, as long as it is safe to do so. The resource is specified by its Pulumi URN (use pulumi stack --show-urns to get it).

Resources can’t be deleted if there exist other resources that depend on it or are parented to it. Protected resources will not be deleted unless it is specifically requested using the –force flag.

Make sure that URNs are single-quoted to avoid having characters unexpectedly interpreted by the shell.

Example: pulumi state delete ‘urn:pulumi:stage::demo::eks:index:Cluster$pulumi:providers:kubernetes::eks-provider’
