kf delete NAME [flags]

  • There are many child objects.
  • There are finalizers on the object preventing deletion.
  • The cluster is in an unhealthy state.

Deleting an App will remove associated deployment history, cluster logs, and Builds.

Things that won't be deleted:

  • source code
  • container images
  • Routes
  • ServiceInstances
