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.
Only one type of the arguments may be specified: filenames, resources and names, or resources and label selector
Note that the delete command does NOT do resource version checks, so if someone submits an update to a resource right when you submit a delete, their update will be lost along with the rest of the resource.
kubectl delete ([-f FILENAME] | TYPE [(NAME | -l label | --all)])
# Delete a pod using the type and name specified in pod.json. kubectl delete -f ./pod.json # Delete a pod based on the type and name in the JSON passed into stdin. cat pod.json | kubectl delete -f - # Delete pods and services with same names "baz" and "foo" kubectl delete pod,service baz foo # Delete pods and services with label name=myLabel. kubectl delete pods,services -l name=myLabel # Delete a pod immediately (no graceful shutdown) kubectl delete pod foo --now # Delete a pod with UID 1234-56-7890-234234-456456. kubectl delete pod 1234-56-7890-234234-456456 # Delete all pods kubectl delete pods --all
--all [-all] to select all the specified resources. --cascade If true, cascade the deletion of the resources managed by this resource (e.g. Pods created by a ReplicationController). Default true. (default true) -f, --filename value Filename, directory, or URL to a file containing the resource to delete. (default ) --grace-period int Period of time in seconds given to the resource to terminate gracefully. Ignored if negative. (default -1) --ignore-not-found Treat "resource not found" as a successful delete. Defaults to "true" when --all is specified. --include-extended-apis If true, include definitions of new APIs via calls to the API server. [default true] (default true) --now If true, resources are force terminated without graceful deletion (same as --grace-period=0). -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. --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 (default 0s)
--alsologtostderr value log to standard error as well as files --as string Username to impersonate for the operation --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 value when logging hits line file:N, emit a stack trace (default :0) --log-dir value If non-empty, write log files in this directory --logtostderr value 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 --password string Password for basic authentication to the API server -s, --server string The address and port of the Kubernetes API server --stderrthreshold value 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 --username string Username for basic authentication to the API server -v, --v value log level for V logs --vmodule value comma-separated list of pattern=N settings for file-filtered logging
