Find and delete all services and resources of my account

0

Hi, I opened an AWS account a few years ago to check it out and play around with it a little. I don't know why but I just received an email telling me that some free tier period is about to expire and I will be charged soon. I thought I already deleted everything a few years ago but to make sure I went to the Billing Console and tried to find out what was still running. Everything is empty. So I read this post and since I get a lot (!) of search results when I did a resource search (much more than I ever used) I assume somehow something is running. Please tell me how to find and stop/delete everything so I won't get billed for something I don't use. Any help is much appreciated!

Hi - I think the knowledge article that you have is correct one and should follow the same https://repost.aws/knowledge-center/check-for-active-resources. In addition you can also explore https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/introducing-aws-resource-explorer-quickly-find-resources-in-your-aws-account/. Also some resources, you can also have them in stop state

  • Thanks for your answer! So this is getting frustrating... I set up the resource explorer and it found no resources. When I checked again half an hour later it found 466 resources. I'm not sure if the search just took a while or if these are now there because I set up the resource explorer. But more importantly: how can I delete them?

  • I tried out this tool called aws-nuke and excluded nothing. It deleted 149 resources. Now when I check for active resources (first link) I only get 19 hits. With the resource explorer (second link) I get 460 hits. Could it be that the remaining stuff is just always there? It's things like ec2:dhcp-options, ec2:internet-gateway, ec2:network-acl, ec2:route-table, ec2:security-group, ec2:security-group-rule, ec2:subnet, ec2:vpc, elasticache:parametergroup, elasticache:user, iam:role.
