Deleting an Empty Vault by Using the S3 Glacier Console


Before deleting a vault, you must delete all existing archives within the vault. You can do this by writing code to make a delete archive request by using either the REST API, the Amazon SDK for Java, the Amazon SDK for .NET, or by using the Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI). For information about deleting archives, see Step 5: Delete an Archive from a Vault in S3 Glacier.

After your vault is empty, you can delete it by using the following steps.
