When you no longer require a database deployment on Oracle Database Cloud Service, you can delete it.
You cannot delete a database deployment that has any linked-clone deployments created from any of its snapshots. Before you can delete the deployment you must first delete all linked-clone deployments derived from it.
To delete a database deployment:
- Open the Instances page of the Oracle Database Cloud Service console.
For detailed instructions, see Accessing the Oracle Database Cloud Service Console.
- Select Delete from the action menu () corresponding to the database deployment that you want to delete.
You are prompted to confirm the deletion.
- Use the confirmation dialog to confirm that you want to delete the database deployment. Optionally, you can also select the option to delete the backups associated with the database deployment.
Note:The option to delete the backups associated with the database deployment only exists for deployments that are created using Database Cloud Service release 17.1.5, or later.
Once deleted, the entry is removed from the list of database deployments displayed on the Oracle Database Cloud Service console.
