Sujith, an AWS Cloud Support Engineer, shows you how to delete a CloudFormation stack but retain some or all of the provisioned resources.
simple! to the point. you have a new follower
Can you please share CF template that you used for Deletion process. if you have any GitHub link that will help us a lot.
Very neat and crisp demo. Thanks Sujith.
Title is misleading. You have to create a stack with deletion policy statement beforehand so it doesn't get deleted at stack delete time.
Thanks for this good tutorial. It clears my mind regarding CF Retain Policy.
I got one question though. How CF handle the stack recreation with resources that have been retains.
Actually, what happens if a create a new stack from the same template ?
Does CF :
– Override the previously retained resources ?
– Fail to execute because retained resources already exist ?
Thanks in advance
very simple presentation
What a simple presentation. This saves our lot of time in management and no need to contact aws support, due to failed depencies… Great work Amazon. And kudoz to the chap who gave this vlog
