How to delete a kubernetes deployment with kubectl

First select the deployment name in the current context you, if you don't know it with the following command:

kubectl get deploy
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You should get a list of deployments similar to the following:

NAME                                       READY   UP-TO-DATE   AVAILABLE   AGE
pdv-location-batch-test                    0/1     1            0           2m12s
connector-partner-service                  1/1     1            1           330d
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then use kubectl delete deploy <deployment name> to delete the deployment, in my case pdv-location-batch-test was the deployment I was looking for:

kubectl delete deploy pdv-location-batch-test
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You should get something similar to the following:

deployment.apps "pdv-lokation-batch-test" deleted
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
