Options for the delete command

This page describes the datalab delete command.

Usage

datalab delete [-h] [--delete-disk | --keep-disk] [--project PROJECT]
               [--quiet] [--verbosity {debug,info,warning,error,critical,none}]
               [--zone ZONE]
               NAME

datalab delete deletes the given Datalab instance's Google Compute Engine VM.

By default, the persistent disk's auto-delete configuration determines whether or not that disk is also deleted.

If you wish to override that setting, you can pass in one of either the --delete-disk flag or the --keep-disk flag.

For more information on disk auto-deletion, see here

Options

-h/--help

Show a help message and exit

--delete-disk

Whether or not to delete the instance's persistent disk regardless of the disks' auto-delete configuration.

--keep-disk

Whether or not to keep the instance's persistent disk regardless of the disks' auto-delete configuration.

--project PROJECT

The Google Cloud Platform project name to use for this invocation.

If omitted then the current project is assumed.

--quiet

Do not issue any interactive prompts

--verbosity {debug,info,warning,error,critical,none}

Override the default output verbosity for this command.

--zone ZONE

The zone containing the instance. If not specified, you may be prompted to select a zone.

To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, you can set the compute/zone property:

$ gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE

A list of zones can be fetched by running:

$ gcloud compute zones list

To unset the property, run:

$ gcloud config unset compute/zone

Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable CLOUDSDK_COMPUTE_ZONE.
