Delete an instance group

    Important

    Deleting an instance group is an operation that cannot be canceled or reversed. You cannot restore a deleted group. Along with the group, you delete the Load Balancer target group, instances, and disks.

    To delete an instance group:

    1. Open the folder page in the management console.

    2. Select Yandex Compute Cloud.

    3. On the Virtual machines page, go to the Instance groups tab.

    4. Click image for the group you want to delete and select Delete.

    If you don't have the Yandex.Cloud command line interface yet, install it.

    The folder specified in the CLI profile is used by default. You can specify a different folder using the --folder-name or --folder-id flag.

    1. See the description of the CLI's delete instance group command:

      $ yc compute instance-group delete --help
      
    2. Get a list of instance groups in the default folder:

      $ yc compute instance-group list
      +----------------------+-----------------------+------+
      |          ID          |         NAME          | SIZE |
      +----------------------+-----------------------+------+
      | amc65sbgfqeqf00m02sc | first-instance-group  |    2 |
      +----------------------+-----------------------+------+
      

      Fields:

      Field Value
      ID Group ID.
      NAME Group name.
      SIZE Group size.
    3. Select the ID or NAME of the group (for example, first-fixed-group).

    4. Delete the instance group:

      $ yc compute instance-group delete --name first-fixed-group
      

      Instance Groups starts the operation to delete the instance group.

    Use the delete API method.

    To request a list of available groups, use the listInstances.
