To remove the association between an AWS account and a VMware Cloud Director organization, you can reset the AWS account.
If the AWS account is shared between VMware Cloud Director organizations, you cannot clean up buckets and objects from AWS S3.
If the AWS account is associated with a single VMware Cloud Director organization, you can optionally clean up all buckets and objects that the account owns from AWS S3. If you choose not to clean up the buckets and objects that the account owns, the resources remain stored in AWS S3.
- Log in to the VMware Cloud Director cloud provider admin portal.
- From the More drop-down menu, select Object Storage.
- On the Tenants tab, click the name of the tenant organization to which the AWS account belongs.
- In the storage platform card, click Reset Tenant.
- (Optional) To remove all buckets and objects from AWS S3, select Clean up all buckets.
Cleaning up buckets and objects from AWS S3 is time consuming. You can close the dialog box and come back to the Tenants tab to review the progress.Note: If the cleanup operation fails, resetting the AWS account also fails.
If this account is reused or invited, the account is released from the organization unit and is moved to the root organization pool.
If the account is invited, the account is removed from the root organization pool.
What to do next
If the account is invited, you cannot reuse it. To provide access to VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension to the same AWS account, invite the account again. See Invite an AWS User Account.
