Delete a Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) cluster using the rosa command-line.

AWS Security Token Service (STS) is the recommended credential mode for installing and interacting with clusters on Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) because it provides enhanced security.

Prerequisites

  • If Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS created a VPC, you must remove the following items from your cluster before you can successfully delete your cluster:

    • Network configurations, such as VPN configurations and VPC peering connections

    • Any additional services that were added to the VPC

If these configurations and services remain, the cluster does not delete properly.
