In this lesson you will learn how to remove an S3 Bucket used to deploy a SAM application using the AWS CLI.

Instructor: [00:00] To remove the deployment bucket, I'm going to use the AWS CLI by typing in AWS S3 RB, for remove bucket, and then the S3 URL for my egghead videos bucket.

[00:15] Because my bucket isn't empty, I need to use the force option so that it will delete the files. If I don't do this, it will fail because the bucket isn't empty. I also need to provide a profile that can delete the bucket and the region the bucket was in.

[00:36] Once the command finishes, we can go to the AWS console to check that the bucket has been removed.
