Deleting an IP set

Follow the guidance in this section to delete a referenced set.

Deleting referenced sets and rule groups

When you delete an entity that you can use in a web ACL, like an IP set, regex pattern set, or rule group, Amazon WAF checks to see if the entity is currently being used in a web ACL. If it finds that it is in use, Amazon WAF warns you. Amazon WAF is almost always able to determine if an entity is being referenced by a web ACL. However, in rare cases it might not be able to do so. If you need to be sure that nothing is currently using the entity, check for it in your web ACLs before deleting it. If the entity is a referenced set, also check that no rule groups are using it.
