How to delete an environment

Assume that you have two environments, test and prod. In your overrides file, the definitions might look something like this:

...
envs:
  - name: test
    serviceAccountPaths:
      synchronizer: "your_keypath/synchronizer-manager-service-account.json
      udca: "your_keypath/analytic-agent-service-account.json
  - name: prod
    serviceAccountPaths:
      synchronizer: "your_keypath/synchronizer-manager-service-account.json
      udca: "your_keypath/analytic-agent-service-account.json
...

To delete the prod environment, follow these steps:

  1. Get your gcloud authentication credentials:
    TOKEN=$(gcloud auth print-access-token)
  2. Delete the environment from any associated environment groups, one at a time:
    curl -X DELETE -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" \
      "https://apigee.googleapis.com/v1/organizations/$ORG_NAME/envgroups/$ENV_GROUP/attachments/$ATTACHMENT_ID"
    Where $ATTACHMENT_ID is the system generated UUID.
  3. Do a dry run to test removal of the runtime components:
    apigeectl delete -f overrides.yaml --env=prod --dry-run=true
  4. If the dry run is error-free, remove the runtime components:
    apigeectl delete -f overrides.yaml --env=prod
  5. Delete the environment from the management plane:
    curl -X DELETE -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" \
      "https://apigee.googleapis.com/v1/organizations/$ORG_NAME/environments/prod"
  6. Open your overrides file and remove the test environment definition from envs and virtualhosts, leaving only the prod definitions. For example:
    ...
    envs:
      - name: prod
        serviceAccountPaths:
          synchronizer: "your_keypath/synchronizer-manager-service-account.json
          udca: "your_keypath/analytic-agent-service-account.json
    ...
  7. Save the file.
