Why Are All My Resources Deleted?

0

Points of My Scenario:

**1. **My AWS resources includes multiple of EC2 instances, security groups, EBS volumes, subnets, and snapshots.

**2. **When I logged in this evening, ALL resources I created were gone/disappeared/deleted!

**3. **Earlier today, I received an "AWS Budgets" email notification that my budget exceeded my alert threshold.

**4. **I never learned AWS deletes one's resources when they merely exceed their budget alert threshold!

QUESTION: Why were all my resources deleted? How can I investigate who/what did this? Is there any recourse?

  • I confirm that I have not set ANY budget actions.

  • UPDATE: My resources have mysteriously re-appeared! However, I am still concerned. Does anyone have an explanation or has experienced this before?

AWS does not delete the resources due to budget alerts. This has happened to me once where the browser cache was deleted and I got logged into us-east-2 instead of us-east-1. I did panic as I didn't see any of my regional resources. After I am able to think straight, I realize that the region was not the default region I usually log into.

Some browsers may change the AZ when logging in. Check AZ every time you log in. Enter image description here
