Deleting a workgroup

You can delete a workgroup using the console. Before you do this, make sure that you have your data backed up and snapshots in place. Resources deleted as part of the workgroup in many cases can't be retrieved.

Complete the following steps:

  1. Choose Amazon Redshift Serverless, choose Workgroup configuration and choose Delete Amazon Redshift Serverless instance.

  2. A dialogue opens. When you choose to delete the workgroup, all usage limits are removed, all VPC endpoints are removed, and access to VPC endpoints is removed.

    Type delete and select Delete to confirm.

After you complete the steps, the status of the workgroup is Deleting and a banner indicates that the workgroup is being deleted. While the delete process is in progress, some features under the Serverless dashboard are disabled. But you can configure provisioned clusters on the Provisioned clusters dashboard.

After you delete the workgroup, it doesn't appear with the namespace. You can choose the Create workgroup button to create a new one.

You can delete an existing workgroup and associate a new workgroup with a different configuration to the same namespace. When creating the new workgroup, choose the base capacity that works with the size of the data associated with the namespace.

You can associate a workgroup with a namespace that was created with a customer-managed key (CMK). For more information about Amazon KMS, see Amazon KMS concepts.
