Delete a Cookbook

Table of Contents

Table of Contents


You can remove any cookbooks that have been imported into your account from the repositories section. When you remove a cookbook, it is deleting it from RightScale, but will not remove it from the repository the cookbook came from. Cookbooks that are Frozen cannot be deleted. Also, cookbooks that are used by Head ServerTemplates cannot be deleted. If a cookbook is in use by a commited revision of a ServerTemplate, deleting the cookbook from your account does not affect the committed ServerTemplate(s).


  1. Go to Design > Cookbooks and select the cookbook you would like to remove.
  2. Select the cookbook version or versions you would like to remove. 
  3. From the Actions drop-down, select Delete.


  1. A confirmation will ask if you want to remove. If a recipe of that cookbook is in use by a ServerTemplate, then you will not be allowed to delete the cookbooks. You will need to remove the recipe attached to the ServerTemplate. Deleting a cookbook does not remove it from the repository it came from.
  2. Click OK to confirm that you want to delete the cookbook version.
