Delete accounts and data sources in VMware Tanzu Hub

You delete accounts or data sources when you no longer want to manage the resources using Tanzu Hub.

When you delete an account or detach a Kubernetes cluster, data is no longer collected from the data source and added to the graph database. Tanzu Hub does not delete the entity data. By retaining the data, you can reinstate the deleted account and allowTanzu Hub and the underlying services to access the existing entity configuration data rather than starting over.

When you decommission an organization, the decommission process deletes the entity data from the database.

Deleting accounts

Before you can delete the accounts, you might be required to detach clusters and deactivate the event monitoring on the target system. Each account type has slightly different requirements before you can delete the account.

The delete action includes a workflow to guide you through the removal process for the account type. If the account includes attached Kubernetes clusters, you must detach any clusters before deleting the account. Detaching the clusters require deleting the Tanzu Hub collector installed in the cluster. After the collector is offline, you can then detach the clusters. Next, you might be required to deactivate the event monitoring. The workflow includes the instructions, script, and command to disconnect the monitoring.

  1. Select Administration > Set Up and Configure > Accounts.
  2. Click the double arrows beside the cluster to open the cluster details.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the detach process.
  5. Click Delete Account.

Detaching Kubernetes clusters

You can detach Kubernetes clusters as part of the deleting an account. If you want to detach a cluster without deleting the account, you can perform the task directly in the Kubernetes cluster details.

The Detach action is available for Attached clusters. If the cluster status is Discovered or Pending, it is not attached.

The Detach workflow provides the command that you must run to remove the collector before you detach the cluster.

  1. Select Administration > Set Up and Configure > Kubernetes Clusters.
  2. Click the double arrows beside the cluster to open the cluster details.
  3. Click Detach.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the detach process.
  5. Click Detach.
