Destroy the 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:Bucket        my-bucket           delete

Outputs:
  - bucketEndpoint: "http://my-bucket-b9c2eaa.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com"
  - bucketName    : "my-bucket-b9c2eaa"

Resources:
    - 3 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
 -   └─ aws:s3:Bucket        my-bucket           deleted

Outputs:
  - bucketEndpoint: "http://my-bucket-b9c2eaa.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com"
  - bucketName    : "my-bucket-b9c2eaa"

Resources:
    - 3 deleted

Duration: 7s

To delete the stack itself, run pulumi stack rm. Note that this removes the stack entirely from the Pulumi Service, 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.
