Pulumi & AWS: Destroy stack

    Now that you’ve seen how to deploy changes to our program, let’s clean up and tear down the resources that are part of your stack.

    To destroy resources, run the following:

    $ pulumi destroy

    You’ll be prompted to make sure you really want to delete these resources. This can take a minute or two; Pulumi waits until all resources are shut down and deleted before it considers the destroy operation to be complete.

    Previewing destroy (dev):
         Type                               Name                 Plan
     -   pulumi:pulumi:Stack                quickstart-dev       delete
     -   ├─ aws:s3:BucketObject             index.html           delete
     -   ├─ aws:s3:BucketOwnershipControls  ownership-controls   delete
     -   ├─ aws:s3:BucketPublicAccessBlock  public-access-block  delete
     -   └─ aws:s3:Bucket                   my-bucket            delete
      - bucketEndpoint: "http://my-bucket-dfd6bd0.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com"
      - bucketName    : "my-bucket-dfd6bd0"
        - 5 to delete
    Do you want to perform this destroy? yes
    Destroying (dev):
         Type                               Name                 Status
     -   pulumi:pulumi:Stack                quickstart-dev       deleted
     -   ├─ aws:s3:BucketObject             index.html           deleted (1s)
     -   ├─ aws:s3:BucketPublicAccessBlock  public-access-block  deleted (0.28s)
     -   ├─ aws:s3:BucketOwnershipControls  ownership-controls   deleted (0.47s)
     -   └─ aws:s3:Bucket                   my-bucket            deleted (0.39s)
      - bucketEndpoint: "http://my-bucket-dfd6bd0.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com"
      - bucketName    : "my-bucket-dfd6bd0"
        - 5 deleted
    Duration: 4s

    To delete the stack itself, run pulumi stack rm. Note that this removes the stack entirely from Pulumi Cloud, along with all of its update history.

    Congratulations! You’ve successfully provisioned some cloud resources using Pulumi. By completing this guide you have successfully:

    • Created a Pulumi new project.
    • Provisioned a new S3 bucket.
    • Added an index.html file to your bucket.
    • Served the index.html as a static website.
    • Destroyed the resources you’ve provisioned.

    On the next page, we have a collection of examples and tutorials that you can deploy as they are or use them as a foundation for your own applications and infrastructure projects.
