If you want to delete a Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) with hosted control planes (HCP) cluster, you can use either the Red Hat OpenShift Cluster Manager or the ROSA command line interface (CLI) (rosa). After deleting your cluster, you can also delete the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources that are used by the cluster.

Deleting a ROSA with HCP cluster and the cluster-specific IAM resources

You can delete a ROSA with HCP cluster by using the ROSA command line interface (CLI) (rosa) or Red Hat OpenShift Cluster Manager.

After deleting the cluster, you can clean up the cluster-specific Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources in your AWS account by using the ROSA CLI. The cluster-specific resources include the Operator roles and the OpenID Connect (OIDC) provider.

The cluster deletion must complete before you remove the IAM resources, because the resources are used in the cluster deletion and clean up processes.

If add-ons are installed, the cluster deletion takes longer because add-ons are uninstalled before the cluster is deleted. The amount of time depends on the number and size of the add-ons.

Prerequisites
  • You have installed a ROSA with HCP cluster.

  • You have installed and configured the latest ROSA CLI (rosa) on your installation host.

Procedure
  1. Get the cluster ID, the Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) for the cluster-specific Operator roles, and the endpoint URL for the OIDC provider by running the following command:

    $ rosa describe cluster --cluster=<cluster_name>

    1 Lists the cluster ID.
    2 Specifies the ARNs for the cluster-specific Operator roles. For example, in the sample output the ARN for the role required by the Machine Config Operator is arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/mycluster-x4q9-openshift-machine-api-aws-cloud-credentials.
    3 Displays the endpoint URL for the cluster-specific OIDC provider.

    After the cluster is deleted, you need the cluster ID to delete the cluster-specific STS resources using the ROSA CLI.

  2. Delete the cluster by using either the OpenShift Cluster Manager or the ROSA CLI (rosa):

    • To delete the cluster by using the OpenShift Cluster Manager:

      1. Navigate to the OpenShift Cluster Manager.

      2. Click the Options menu kebab next to your cluster and select Delete cluster.

      3. Type the name of your cluster into the prompt and click Delete.

    • To delete the cluster using the ROSA CLI:

      1. Run the following command, replacing <cluster_name> with the name or ID of your cluster:

        $ rosa delete cluster --cluster=<cluster_name> --watch

        You must wait for cluster deletion to complete before you remove the Operator roles and the OIDC provider.

  3. Delete the cluster-specific Operator IAM roles by running the following command:

    $ rosa delete operator-roles --prefix <operator_role_prefix>
  4. Delete the OIDC provider by running the following command:

    $ rosa delete oidc-provider --oidc-config-id <oidc_config_id>
Troubleshooting
  • If the cluster cannot be deleted because of missing IAM roles, see Repairing a cluster that cannot be deleted.

  • If the cluster cannot be deleted for other reasons:

    • Ensure that there are no add-ons for your cluster pending in the Hybrid Cloud Console.

    • Ensure that all AWS resources and dependencies have been deleted in the Amazon Web Console.

Deleting the account-wide IAM resources

After you have deleted all Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) with hosted control planes (HCP) clusters that depend on the account-wide AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources, you can delete the account-wide resources.

If you no longer need to install a ROSA with HCP cluster by using Red Hat OpenShift Cluster Manager, you can also delete the OpenShift Cluster Manager and user IAM roles.

The account-wide IAM roles and policies might be used by other ROSA with HCP clusters in the same AWS account. Only remove the resources if they are not required by other clusters.

The OpenShift Cluster Manager and user IAM roles are required if you want to install, manage, and delete other Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS clusters in the same AWS account by using OpenShift Cluster Manager. Only remove the roles if you no longer need to install Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS clusters in your account by using OpenShift Cluster Manager. For more information about repairing your cluster if these roles are removed before deletion, see "Repairing a cluster that cannot be deleted" in Troubleshooting cluster deployments.

Deleting the account-wide IAM roles and policies

This section provides steps to delete the account-wide IAM roles and policies that you created for ROSA with HCP deployments, along with the account-wide Operator policies. You can delete the account-wide AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles and policies only after deleting all of the ROSA with HCP clusters that depend on them.

The account-wide IAM roles and policies might be used by other Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS in the same AWS account. Only remove the roles if they are not required by other clusters.

Prerequisites
  • You have account-wide IAM roles that you want to delete.

  • You have installed and configured the latest ROSA CLI (rosa) on your installation host.

Procedure
  1. Delete the account-wide roles:

    1. List the account-wide roles in your AWS account by using the ROSA CLI (rosa):

      $ rosa list account-roles
      Example output
      I: Fetching account roles
      ROLE NAME                                 ROLE TYPE      ROLE ARN                                                                 OPENSHIFT VERSION  AWS Managed
      ManagedOpenShift-HCP-ROSA-Installer-Role  Installer      arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-HCP-ROSA-Installer-Role  4.15               Yes
      ManagedOpenShift-HCP-ROSA-Support-Role    Support        arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-HCP-ROSA-Support-Role    4.15               Yes
      ManagedOpenShift-HCP-ROSA-Worker-Role     Worker         arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-HCP-ROSA-Worker-Role     4.15               Yes
    2. Delete the account-wide roles:

      $ rosa delete account-roles --prefix <prefix> --mode auto (1)
      1 You must include the --<prefix> argument. Replace <prefix> with the prefix of the account-wide roles to delete. If you did not specify a custom prefix when you created the account-wide roles, specify the default prefix, ManagedOpenShift.

      The account-wide IAM roles might be used by other ROSA clusters in the same AWS account. Only remove the roles if they are not required by other clusters.

      Example output
      W: There are no classic account roles to be deleted
      I: Deleting hosted CP account roles
      ? Delete the account role 'delete-rosa-HCP-ROSA-Installer-Role'? Yes
      I: Deleting account role 'delete-rosa-HCP-ROSA-Installer-Role'
      ? Delete the account role 'delete-rosa-HCP-ROSA-Support-Role'? Yes
      I: Deleting account role 'delete-rosa-HCP-ROSA-Support-Role'
      ? Delete the account role 'delete-rosa-HCP-ROSA-Worker-Role'? Yes
      I: Deleting account role 'delete-rosa-HCP-ROSA-Worker-Role'
      I: Successfully deleted the hosted CP account roles
  2. Delete the account-wide in-line and Operator policies:

    1. Under the Policies page in the AWS IAM Console, filter the list of policies by the prefix that you specified when you created the account-wide roles and policies.

      If you did not specify a custom prefix when you created the account-wide roles, search for the default prefix, ManagedOpenShift.

    2. Delete the account-wide in-line policies and Operator policies by using the AWS IAM Console. For more information about deleting IAM policies by using the AWS IAM Console, see Deleting IAM policies in the AWS documentation.

      The account-wide in-line and Operator IAM policies might be used by other ROSA with HCP in the same AWS account. Only remove the roles if they are not required by other clusters.

Unlinking and deleting the OpenShift Cluster Manager and user IAM roles

When you install a ROSA with HCP cluster by using Red Hat OpenShift Cluster Manager, you also create OpenShift Cluster Manager and user Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles that link to your Red Hat organization. After deleting your cluster, you can unlink and delete the roles by using the ROSA CLI (rosa).

The OpenShift Cluster Manager and user IAM roles are required if you want to use OpenShift Cluster Manager to install and manage other ROSA with HCP in the same AWS account. Only remove the roles if you no longer need to use the OpenShift Cluster Manager to install ROSA with HCP clusters.

Prerequisites
  • You created OpenShift Cluster Manager and user IAM roles and linked them to your Red Hat organization.

  • You have installed and configured the latest ROSA CLI (rosa) on your installation host.

  • You have organization administrator privileges in your Red Hat organization.

Procedure
  1. Unlink the OpenShift Cluster Manager IAM role from your Red Hat organization and delete the role:

    1. List the OpenShift Cluster Manager IAM roles in your AWS account:

      $ rosa list ocm-roles
      Example output
      I: Fetching ocm roles
      ROLE NAME                                                     ROLE ARN                                                                                         LINKED  ADMIN  AWS Managed
      ManagedOpenShift-OCM-Role-<red_hat_organization_external_id>  arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-OCM-Role-<red_hat_organization_external_id>  Yes      Yes     Yes
    2. If your OpenShift Cluster Manager IAM role is listed as linked in the output of the preceding command, unlink the role from your Red Hat organization by running the following command:

      $ rosa unlink ocm-role --role-arn <arn> (1)
      1 Replace <arn> with the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for your OpenShift Cluster Manager IAM role. The ARN is specified in the output of the preceding command. In the preceding example, the ARN is in the format arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-OCM-Role-<red_hat_organization_external_id>.
      Example output
      I: Unlinking OCM role
      ? Unlink the 'arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-OCM-Role-<red_hat_organization_external_id>' role from organization '<red_hat_organization_id>'? Yes
      I: Successfully unlinked role-arn 'arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-OCM-Role-<red_hat_organization_external_id>' from organization account '<red_hat_organization_id>'
    3. Delete the OpenShift Cluster Manager IAM role and policies:

      $ rosa delete ocm-role --role-arn <arn>
      Example output
      I: Deleting OCM role
      ? OCM Role ARN: arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-OCM-Role-<red_hat_organization_external_id>
      ? Delete 'arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-OCM-Role-<red_hat_organization_external_id>' ocm role? Yes
      ? OCM role deletion mode: auto (1)
      I: Successfully deleted the OCM role
      1 Specifies the deletion mode. You can use auto mode to automatically delete the OpenShift Cluster Manager IAM role and policies. In manual mode, the ROSA CLI generates the aws commands needed to delete the role and policies. manual mode enables you to review the details before running the aws commands manually.
  2. Unlink the user IAM role from your Red Hat organization and delete the role:

    1. List the user IAM roles in your AWS account:

      $ rosa list user-roles
      Example output
      I: Fetching user roles
      ROLE NAME                                  ROLE ARN                                                                  LINKED
      ManagedOpenShift-User-<ocm_user_name>-Role  arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-User-<ocm_user_name>-Role  Yes
    2. If your user IAM role is listed as linked in the output of the preceding command, unlink the role from your Red Hat organization:

      $ rosa unlink user-role --role-arn <arn> (1)
      1 Replace <arn> with the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for your user IAM role. The ARN is specified in the output of the preceding command. In the preceding example, the ARN is in the format arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-User-<ocm_user_name>-Role.
      Example output
      I: Unlinking user role
      ? Unlink the 'arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-User-<ocm_user_name>-Role' role from the current account '<ocm_user_account_id>'? Yes
      I: Successfully unlinked role ARN 'arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-User-<ocm_user_name>-Role' from account '<ocm_user_account_id>'
    3. Delete the user IAM role:

      $ rosa delete user-role --role-arn <arn>
      Example output
      I: Deleting user role
      ? User Role ARN: arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-User-<ocm_user_name>-Role
      ? Delete the 'arn:aws:iam::<aws_account_id>:role/ManagedOpenShift-User-<ocm_user_name>-Role' role from the AWS account? Yes
      ? User role deletion mode: auto (1)
      I: Successfully deleted the user role
      1 Specifies the deletion mode. You can use auto mode to automatically delete the user IAM role. In manual mode, the ROSA CLI generates the aws command needed to delete the role. manual mode enables you to review the details before running the aws command manually.
