Destroy the Stack

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

To destroy resources, run the following:

$ pulumi destroy

You’ll be prompted to make sure you really want to delete these resources. Pulumi deletes the storage account and the resource group before it considers the destroy operation to be complete.

Previewing destroy (dev):

     Type                         Name                     Plan
 -   pulumi:pulumi:Stack          quickstart-dev           delete
 -   ├─ azure:storage:Account     storage                  delete
 -   └─ azure:core:ResourceGroup  resourceGroup            delete

    - 3 to delete

Do you want to perform this destroy? yes
Destroying (dev):

     Type                         Name                     Status
 -   pulumi:pulumi:Stack          quickstart-dev           deleted
 -   ├─ azure:storage:Account     storage                  deleted
 -   └─ azure:core:ResourceGroup  resourceGroup            deleted

    - 3 deleted

Duration: 53s

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.

Next, we’ll look at some next steps.
