After you remove an application from the cloud, or if you do not need details for a particular deployment, you can delete the deployment from the Deployments page in Application Services.

About this task

Deleting a deployment from the Deployments page in Application Services does not delete the deployed application, vApp, and its virtual machines for vCloud Director, vRealize Automation virtual machine and the associated virtual machine in vCenter Server, or Amazon EC2 instance from the cloud. To delete an application from the cloud, see Tear Down an Application from the Cloud.
