How do I deactivate an AWS service?


On May 4, I created an Amplify app just to try it out, because I decided I didn't need it so deleted it. Soon after, when I checked the biling dashboard, I noticed I have 5 active services. I did my research and I discovered how to get rid of a service. In most services I didn't find a trace of anything created in there, except Lambda, so I deleted my Lambda functions. Later, I went back to the billing dashboard and I found and it still says I found 5 active services. The next day, it went up to 6 but I didn't do anything except double check my services, and today it went up to 7.

What I'm really wondering is what does an active service mean? Is anyone else experiencing the activation of services without doing anything?

Cost explorer should help identify what services are incurring a charge (active). On the billing dashboard, navigate to the the cost explorer and select the monthly spend by service view to see what services the charges are coming from. You can then navigate to each service and remove the resources in use.
