Leftovers 🦃


Go cli & library for cleaning up orphaned IaaS resources.

Why might you use this?

  • You terraform apply'd way back when and lost your terraform.tfstate. Happens to the best of us.
  • You used the console or cli for some IaaS to create some infrastructure and want to clean up!
  • Your acceptance tests in CI failed, the container disappeared, and infrastructure resources were tragically orphaned. :-(
  • terraform destroy isn't working because the refresh step is failing due to a missing resource.

What's it look like?

It will prompt you before deleting any resource by default, ie:

> leftovers --filter banana

[Firewall: banana-http] Delete? (y/N)

It can be configured to not prompt, ie:

> leftovers --filter banana --no-confirm

[Firewall: banana-http] Deleting...
[Firewall: banana-http] Deleted!

Or maybe you want to see all of the resources in your IaaS, ie:

> leftovers --filter banana --dry-run

[Firewall: banana-http]
[Network: banana]

Finally, you might want to delete a single resource type::

> leftovers types

> leftovers --filter banana --type service-account --no-confirm
[Service Account: banana@pivotal.io] Deleting...
[Service Account: banana@pivotal.io] Deleted!
