K8s forcefully delete resources

Sometimes, when we are working with custom resources, they are stucked in a Terminating phase.

Today, we will see how to resolve this use easily.


First I need to warn you. Force deleting a custom resource can be risky and generate other issues. So be sure about what you are doing before forcing the deletion.

To force delete a custom resource, follow these steps :

  • Edit the Object : kubectl edit customresource/name
  • Remove finalizer parameter
  • Delete the object : kubectl delete customresource/name

And that's it!

I hope it will help you! 🍺
