Delete stateless workloads

Delete your stateless workloads using standard Kubernetes deletion methodologies.

Before you begin

To run commands against a user cluster, use the gdcloud CLI to access its kubeconfig file.

  1. Ensure that you have downloaded, installed, and configured the gdcloud CLI.

  2. Run gdcloud auth login to log in to the org admin cluster.

  3. Locate the user cluster name, or ask your Platform Administrator what the cluster name is.

  4. To generate the kubeconfig file of the user cluster, run:

    gdcloud clusters get-credentials USER_CLUSTER_NAME
    
  5. Record the path to the generated file, such as /tmp/user-cluster-kubeconfig-with-user-identity.yaml.

  6. Use the path to replace USER_CLUSTER_KUBECONFIG in these instructions.

To get the required permissions to delete stateless workloads, ask your Organization IAM Admin to grant you the Namespace Admin role.

Delete a deployment

To delete a Deployment object, run:

kubectl --kubeconfig USER_CLUSTER_KUBECONFIG \
    delete deployment DEPLOYMENT_NAME

Replace the following:

  • USER_CLUSTER_KUBECONFIG: the kubeconfig file for the user cluster.

  • DEPLOYMENT_NAME: the name of the deployment to delete.
