This topic describes how to disassociate an elastic IP address (EIP) from a cloud resource when Internet access is no longer needed. An EIP that is disassociated from a cloud resource still incurs retention costs.


  1. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the EIP is deployed.
  2. On the Elastic IP Addresses page, find the EIP that you want to disassociate, and click Unbind in the Actions column.
  3. In the message that appears, click OK.
