Deleting a deployed service.

You might have deployed an application to an orchestration platform like Amazon ECS, Kubernetes, GKE, or Azure using Shippable Assembly Lines. If the application is decommissioned or if you do not need it in any particular environment, this document will describe the steps to delete the application. These steps will stop and remove the container from the cluster.


1. Update the deploy job.

Locate your deploy job in your shippable.yml file and comment it out or delete it from your yml. For example:


#  - name: app_deploy_job
#    type: deploy
#    steps:
#      - IN: app_service_def
#      - IN: op_cluster
#      - IN: app_replicas

Please make sure you make the necessary adjustments to your Assembly Line, i.e. if your deploy job was an IN to another job, then that job yml needs to be adjusted accordingly:

2. Commit the file

Once the file is committed, the rSync job will run and Shippable will detect that the deploy job was deleted. Please note that this will delete your service on your orchestration platform.

This step soft-deletes the deploy job, so it still shows in the Deleted Resources list in your SPOG view.

3. Hard delete the deploy job (optional)

If you are fairly certain that you will not need to re-deploy the deleted service, you should hard delete the deploy job by following the steps below:

  • Go to your Subscription dashboard, click on the eye icon, click on Show Deleted Objects.
  • Find your job in the DELETED OBJECTS grid at the bottom of the screen.
  • Click on the Delete button.
