Deleting an AS Group

You can delete an AS group when it is no longer required.

  • If an AS group is not required during a specified period of time, you are advised to disable it but not delete it.
  • An AS group can be deleted only when it has no instances and no scaling action is being performed.
  • After an AS group is deleted, its AS policies and the alarm rules generated based on the AS policies configured for the AS group will be automatically deleted.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner and select the desired region and project.
  3. Under Computing, click Auto Scaling. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Instance Scaling.
  4. In the AS group list, locate the row containing the target AS group and choose More > Delete in the Operation column.
  5. In the displayed Delete AS Group dialog box, click Yes.
