Deleting a parameter group - Amazon MemoryDB for Redis
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.

Deleting a parameter group

You can delete a custom parameter group using the MemoryDB console, the Amazon CLI, or the MemoryDB API.

You cannot delete a parameter group if it is associated with any clusters. Nor can you delete any of the default parameter groups.

Deleting a parameter group (Console)

The following procedure shows how to delete a parameter group using the MemoryDB console.

To delete a parameter group using the MemoryDB console

  1. Sign in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console and open the MemoryDB for Redis console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/memorydb/.

  2. To see a list of all available parameter groups, in the left hand navigation pane choose Parameter Groups.

  3. Choose the parameter groups you want to delete by choosing the radio button to the left of the parameter group's name.

    Choose Actions and then choose Delete.

  4. The Delete Parameter Groups confirmation screen will appear.

  5. To delete the parameter groups enter Delete in the confirmation text box.

    To keep the parameter groups, choose Cancel.

Deleting a parameter group (Amazon CLI)

To delete a parameter group using the Amazon CLI, use the command delete-parameter-group. For the parameter group to delete, the parameter group specified by --parameter-group-name cannot have any clusters associated with it, nor can it be a default parameter group.

The following sample code deletes the myRedis6x parameter group.

For Linux, OS X, or Unix:

aws memorydb delete-parameter-group \ --parameter-group-name myRedis6x

For Windows:

aws memorydb delete-parameter-group ^ --parameter-group-name myRedis6x

For more information, see delete-parameter-group.

Deleting a parameter group (MemoryDB API)

To delete a parameter group using the MemoryDB API, use the DeleteParameterGroup action. For the parameter group to delete, the parameter group specified by ParameterGroupName cannot have any clusters associated with it, nor can it be a default parameter group.

The following sample code deletes the myRedis6x parameter group.

https://memory-db.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/ ?Action=DeleteParameterGroup &ParameterGroupName=myRedis6x &SignatureVersion=4 &SignatureMethod=HmacSHA256 &Timestamp=20210802T192317Z &Version=2021-01-01 &X-Amz-Credential=<credential>
