Enabling Instance Termination Protection

Last updated: 2022-07-05 17:11:14

    Overview

    To prevent instances from being terminated unexpectedly, you can enable Termination Protection.

    When Termination Protection is enabled, the instance cannot be terminated in the console or by using APIs. You can disable this setting any time as necessary.

    Notes

    • Instance termination protection is disabled by default.
    • Instance termination protection does not take effect at the system level; for example, when a pay-as-you-go instance is to be terminated due to overdue payment, the protection does not apply.
