Deleting Custom Images

Last updated: 2021-03-25 11:40:28


    This document describes how to delete custom images.


    Before deleting custom images, please note the following items:

    • After a custom image is deleted, it can no longer be used to start a new CVM instance, but will not affect instances that have already been started. If you want to delete all instances started from this image, see Reclaiming Instances or Terminate Instances.
    • A custom image that has been shared with others cannot be deleted. To delete it, you need to cancel image sharing first. For more information, see Cancel Image Sharing.
    • You can only delete the custom image, not common image or shared image.


    Delete images through the console

    1. Log in to the CVM Console.
    2. On the left sidebar, click Images and select the Custom Image tab to enter the custom image management page.
    3. Select the method to delete custom images based on actual needs.

    • Deleting multiple images: select all custom images to be deleted in the image list and click Delete on the top.
    1. In the pop-up window, click OK.
