Remove any apps or clusters that you no longer want to manage from Astra Control Center.

Unmanage an app

Stop managing apps that you no longer want to back up, snapshot, or clone from Astra Control Center.

When you unmanage an app:

  • Any existing backups and snapshots will be deleted.

  • Applications and data remain available.

Steps
  1. From the left navigation bar, select Applications.

  2. Select the app.

  3. From the Options menu in the Actions column, select Unmanage.

  4. Review the information.

  5. Type "unmanage" to confirm.

  6. Select Yes, unmanage application.

Result

Astra Control Center stops managing the app.

Unmanage a cluster

Stop managing the cluster that you no longer want to manage from Astra Control Center.

Note Before you unmanage the cluster, you should unmanage the apps associated with the cluster.

When you unmanage a cluster:

  • This action stops your cluster from being managed by Astra Control Center. It doesn’t make any changes to the cluster’s configuration and it doesn’t delete the cluster.

  • Trident won’t be uninstalled from the cluster. Learn how to uninstall Trident.

Steps
  1. From the left navigation bar, select Clusters.

  2. Select the check box for the cluster that you no longer want to manage.

  3. From the Options menu in the Actions column, select Unmanage.

  4. Confirm that you want to unmanage the cluster and then select Yes, unmanage cluster.

Result

The status of the cluster changes to Removing. After that, the cluster will be removed from the Clusters page and it is no longer managed by Astra Control Center.

Important If Astra Control Center and Cloud Insights are not connected, unmanaging the cluster removes all the resources that were installed for sending telemetry data. If Astra Control Center and Cloud Insights are connected, unmanaging the cluster deletes only the fluentbit and event-exporter pods.
