Delete the EKSCTL Cluster

This workshop has been deprecated and archived. The new Amazon EKS Workshop is now available at

In order to delete the resources created for this EKS cluster, run the following commands:

Delete the cluster:

eksctl delete cluster --name=eksworkshop-eksctl

Without the --wait flag, this will only issue a delete operation to the cluster’s CloudFormation stack and won’t wait for its deletion. The nodegroup will have to complete the deletion process before the EKS cluster can be deleted. The total process will take approximately 15 minutes, and can be monitored via the CloudFormation Console.
