DeleteGlobalReplicationGroup - Amazon ElastiCache
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

DeleteGlobalReplicationGroup

Deleting a Global datastore is a two-step process:

  • First, you must DisassociateGlobalReplicationGroup to remove the secondary clusters in the Global datastore.

  • Once the Global datastore contains only the primary cluster, you can use the DeleteGlobalReplicationGroup API to delete the Global datastore while retainining the primary cluster using RetainPrimaryReplicationGroup=true.

Since the Global Datastore has only a primary cluster, you can delete the Global Datastore while retaining the primary by setting RetainPrimaryReplicationGroup=true. The primary cluster is never deleted when deleting a Global Datastore. It can only be deleted when it no longer is associated with any Global Datastore.

When you receive a successful response from this operation, Amazon ElastiCache immediately begins deleting the selected resources; you cannot cancel or revert this operation.
