Deleting a Service Instance

Warning: Pivotal Cloud Cache v1.7 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

You can delete service instances using the cf CLI. Before doing so, you must remove any existing service keys and app bindings.

  1. Run cf delete-service-key SERVICE-INSTANCE-NAME KEY-NAME to delete the service key.
  2. Run cf unbind-service APP-NAME SERVICE-INSTANCE-NAME to unbind your app from the service instance.
  3. Run cf delete-service SERVICE-INSTANCE-NAME to delete the service instance.
$ cf delete-service-key my-cloudcache my-service-key
$ cf unbind-service my-app my-cloudcache
$ cf delete-service my-cloudcache

Deletions are asynchronous. Run cf services to view the current status of the service instance deletion.
