Question

Delete Space Bucket Immediately

I would like to know how to delete a bucket immediately. I created a bucket with aws-cli in Spaces, included some files and deleted (from the panel), during some tests I was doing, but the deleted bucket is showing “Scheduled to be destroyed on 10/14/19” (about 2 weeks after bucket creation).

This causes the error “An error occurred (BucketDeleted) when calling the ListObjects operation: This bucket is temporarily reserved for administrative purposes.” when trying to create a new bucket with the same name to test again.

Is there a way to delete the bucket immediately (without having to wait weeks)?

Hey,

When you destroy any Spaces it will be moved to pending destruction status. In the 2+ week period during which Space is pending destruction, you cannot reuse that Space’s name. However, you can recover Spaces from pending destruction status by opening a support ticket.

hey @dikshith , this doesn’t answer the question unfortunately. 2+ weeks period for a basic delete operation is just too long. Also, it’s good to know that they can be recovered from destruction but why there is no “recover” or “cancel destruction” button on UI?
