Delete resources by filenames, stdin, resources and names, or by resources and label selector
Delete resources by filenames, stdin, resources and names, or by resources and label selector. JSON and YAML formats are accepted.
Note that the delete command does NOT do resource version checks
kubedb delete ([-f FILENAME] | TYPE [(NAME | -l label | --all)])
# Delete a elasticsearch using the type and name specified in elastic.json. kubedb delete -f ./elastic.json # Delete a postgres based on the type and name in the JSON passed into stdin. cat postgres.json | kubedb delete -f - # Delete elasticsearch with label elasticsearch.kubedb.com/name=elasticsearch-demo. kubedb delete elasticsearch -l elasticsearch.kubedb.com/name=elasticsearch-demo # Delete all mysql objects kubedb delete mysql --all
--all Delete all resources, including uninitialized ones, in the namespace of the specified resource types. --cascade If true, cascade the deletion of the resources managed by this resource (e.g. Pods created by a ReplicationController). Default true. (default true) --field-selector string Selector (field query) to filter on, supports '=', '==', and '!='.(e.g. --field-selector key1=value1,key2=value2). The server only supports a limited number of field queries per type. -f, --filename strings containing the resource to delete. --force Only used when grace-period=0. If true, immediately remove resources from API and bypass graceful deletion. Note that immediate deletion of some resources may result in inconsistency or data loss and requires confirmation. --grace-period int Period of time in seconds given to the resource to terminate gracefully. Ignored if negative. Set to 1 for immediate shutdown. Can only be set to 0 when --force is true (force deletion). (default -1) -h, --help help for delete --ignore-not-found Treat "resource not found" as a successful delete. Defaults to "true" when --all is specified. --include-uninitialized If true, the kubectl command applies to uninitialized objects. If explicitly set to false, this flag overrides other flags that make the kubectl commands apply to uninitialized objects, e.g., "--all". Objects with empty metadata.initializers are regarded as initialized. --now If true, resources are signaled for immediate shutdown (same as --grace-period=1). -o, --output string Output mode. Use "-o name" for shorter output (resource/name). -R, --recursive Process the directory used in -f, --filename recursively. Useful when you want to manage related manifests organized within the same directory. -l, --selector string Selector (label query) to filter on, not including uninitialized ones. --timeout duration The length of time to wait before giving up on a delete, zero means determine a timeout from the size of the object --wait If true, wait for resources to be gone before returning. This waits for finalizers. (default true)
--alsologtostderr log to standard error as well as files --analytics Send analytical events to Google Analytics (default true) --as string Username to impersonate for the operation --as-group stringArray Group to impersonate for the operation, this flag can be repeated to specify multiple groups. --cache-dir string Default HTTP cache directory (default "/home/tamal/.kube/http-cache") --certificate-authority string Path to a cert file for the certificate authority --client-certificate string Path to a client certificate file for TLS --client-key string Path to a client key file for TLS --cluster string The name of the kubeconfig cluster to use --context string The name of the kubeconfig context to use --insecure-skip-tls-verify If true, the server's certificate will not be checked for validity. This will make your HTTPS connections insecure --kubeconfig string Path to the kubeconfig file to use for CLI requests. --log-backtrace-at traceLocation when logging hits line file:N, emit a stack trace (default :0) --log-dir string If non-empty, write log files in this directory --logtostderr log to standard error instead of files --match-server-version Require server version to match client version -n, --namespace string If present, the namespace scope for this CLI request --request-timeout string The length of time to wait before giving up on a single server request. Non-zero values should contain a corresponding time unit (e.g. 1s, 2m, 3h). A value of zero means don't timeout requests. (default "0") -s, --server string The address and port of the Kubernetes API server --stderrthreshold severity logs at or above this threshold go to stderr (default 2) --token string Bearer token for authentication to the API server --user string The name of the kubeconfig user to use -v, --v Level log level for V logs --vmodule moduleSpec comma-separated list of pattern=N settings for file-filtered logging
