Tear down this lab

When a CloudFormation stack is deleted, CloudFormation will automatically delete the resources that it created.

If you are attending an in-person workshop and were provided with an AWS account by the instructor:

  • There is no need to tear down the lab. Feel free to continue exploring. Log out of your AWS account when done.

If you are using your own AWS account:

  • You may leave these resources deployed for as long as you want. When you are ready to delete these resources, see the following instructions

Remove AWS CloudFormation provisioned resources
