Deleting a Vault in Amazon S3 Glacier Using the Amazon SDK for Java

The following are the steps to delete a vault using the low-level API of the Amazon SDK for Java.

  1. Create an instance of the AmazonGlacierClient class (the client).

    You need to specify an Amazon Region from where you want to delete a vault. All operations you perform using this client apply to that Amazon Region.

  2. Provide request information by creating an instance of the DeleteVaultRequest class.

    You need to provide the vault name and account ID. If you don't provide an account ID, then account ID associated with the credentials you provide to sign the request is assumed. For more information, see Using the Amazon SDK for Java with Amazon S3 Glacier.

  3. Run the deleteVault method by providing the request object as a parameter.

    Amazon S3 Glacier (S3 Glacier) deletes the vault only if it is empty. For more information, see Delete Vault (DELETE vault).

The following Java code snippet illustrates the preceding steps.

try { DeleteVaultRequest request = new DeleteVaultRequest() .withVaultName("*** provide vault name ***"); client.deleteVault(request); System.out.println("Deleted vault: " + vaultName); } catch (Exception e) { System.err.println(e.getMessage()); }

For information about the underlying REST API, see Delete Vault (DELETE vault).
