This topic describes how to use Resource Orchestration Service (ROS) to delete a stack.


A stack is created. For more information about how to delete a stack, see Create a stack.


  1. Log on to the ROS console.
  2. In the upper-left corner, select the region where the target stack resides from the drop-down list.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Stacks.
  4. Click Delete in the Actions column corresponding to the target stack.

    You can use any of the following methods to delete a stack:
    • Retain Resources: retains stack resources when the stack is deleted.
    • Release Resources: releases stack resources when the stack is deleted.
  6. Click OK.
