Deleting a Promise


Deleting a Promise will cascade delete all the associated requested Resources and Dependencies.

To delete a Promise, run the command below, making sure to replace the <promise name> with the Promise you want to remove:

$ kubectl delete <promise-name>

Alternatively you can delete a Promise by providing the Promise definition file:

$ kubectl delete --filename promise.yaml

Deleting a Promise will take a few minutes to complete while Kratix deletes all the workloads associated with Promise, including any requested Resources and all the of the Promise dependencies.

If the Promise contains a Promise Delete workflow, it will also be run during the delete process.


All workloads created by the Promise are applied to the end destinations using GitOps.

This mean that when Kratix deletes the workloads, it is removing their definitions from the Destination's State Store, and is delegating the responsibility to actually delete them from the destination infrastructure to GitOps (or other deployment solution) on the destinations.

This results in a small delay between the resources being declared as deleted and them being deleted on the end destination infrastructure.
