KubectlDeleteSettings Class


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. Some resources, such as pods, support graceful deletion. These resources define a default period before they are forcibly terminated (the grace period) but you may override that value with the --grace-period flag, or pass --now to set a grace-period of 1. Because these resources often represent entities in the cluster, deletion may not be acknowledged immediately. If the node hosting a pod is down or cannot reach the API server, termination may take significantly longer than the grace period. To force delete a resource, you must pass a grace period of 0 and specify the --force flag. IMPORTANT: Force deleting pods does not wait for confirmation that the pod's processes have been terminated, which can leave those processes running until the node detects the deletion and completes graceful deletion. If your processes use shared storage or talk to a remote API and depend on the name of the pod to identify themselves, force deleting those pods may result in multiple processes running on different machines using the same identification which may lead to data corruption or inconsistency. Only force delete pods when you are sure the pod is terminated, or if your application can tolerate multiple copies of the same pod running at once. Also, if you force delete pods the scheduler may place new pods on those nodes before the node has released those resources and causing those pods to be evicted immediately. 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.

Type Description



Name Value Summary
All Nullable<bool>
--all Delete all resources, including uninitialized ones, in the namespace of the specified resource types.
AllNamespaces Nullable<bool>
-A, --all-namespaces If present, list the requested object(s) across all namespaces. Namespace in current context is ignored even if specified with --namespace.
Cascade Nullable<bool>
--cascade If true, cascade the deletion of the resources managed by this resource (e.g. Pods created by a ReplicationController). Default true.
FieldSelector string
--field-selector 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.
Filename string
-f, --filename containing the resource to delete.
Force Nullable<bool>
--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.
GracePeriod Nullable<int>
--grace-period 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).
IgnoreNotFound Nullable<bool>
--ignore-not-found Treat "resource not found" as a successful delete. Defaults to "true" when --all is specified.
Kustomize string
-k, --kustomize Process a kustomization directory. This flag can't be used together with -f or -R.
Now Nullable<bool>
--now If true, resources are signaled for immediate shutdown (same as --grace-period=1).
Output string
-o, --output Output mode. Use "-o name" for shorter output (resource/name).
Recursive Nullable<bool>
-R, --recursive Process the directory used in -f, --filename recursively. Useful when you want to manage related manifests organized within the same directory.
Selector string
-l, --selector Selector (label query) to filter on, not including uninitialized ones.
Timeout string
--timeout The length of time to wait before giving up on a delete, zero means determine a timeout from the size of the object
Wait Nullable<bool>
--wait If true, wait for resources to be gone before returning. This waits for finalizers.
