Terminating EBS


I am trying to terminate an EBS environment according to instructions.
"Step 2 In the navigation pane, choose Environments, and then choose the name of your environment from the list." When I click on the environments on the left side I do not get a list.

According to the billing, I still have one that I need to terminate.

AWS Service Charges $0.21 $0.20 Elastic Compute Cloud $0.20 US East (Ohio) EBS $0.20 $0.10 per GB-month of General Purpose SSD (gp2) provisioned storage - US East (Ohio) 1.976 GB-Mo $0.20 Taxes $0.01

How can I find and terminate the instance?

The link you shared is for Elastic Beanstalk, but the usage is referring to EBS.

To get a listing of your EBS volumes,

  • first make sure you are in the correct region (Ohio) which should be listed on the top right of your AWS console.
  • next browse to the EC2 service either by searching in the search bar at the top of the console or selecting EC2 from the service listing
  • Once in EC2, on the left panel under Elastic Block Store you should find listed volumes and snapshots.
    • click on volumes and you should get a listing of your volumes
    • You can select your volume(s) and under actions select delete volumes
    • if your volume is attached to an EC2 instance, you will need to detach the volume first
  • I also recommend checking if you have any snapshots by clicking snapshots on the left panel. Be warned that deleted the volumes and snapshots will erase the disk volumes and they will not be recoverable.
