Delete CloudFormation stack - retaining resources

How to remove an existing CloudFormation stack, but retain the managed resources.

First step - we need the stack within a state of DELETE_FAILED, this can be achieve by attempting stack delete with a user that only has IAM rights to cloudformation:*. Create a new temporary IAM user with the following inline policy:

Remove AWS network interfaces from given security group ID.
View README.md

Remove AWS network interfaces from security group ID

Script has been handy to clean up security groups which have been used with VPC honed AWS Lambda functions and maintain an ENI association.

Why this is a problem:

  • New Lambda is created within the given VPC subnets and security group.
  • During deployment, AWS creates ENIs assigned to the security group and placed into the instructed subnets.
  • Next, change is made to Lambda involving new security group association. AWS now creates new ENIs - as ENI reuse between Lambdas is only for the same security group/subnet combination.
  • Finally, user wishes to clean up legacy security group - but can't as existing ENIs still use security group.

List AWS Lambda@Edge log groups across regions.
View README.md

List AWS Lambda@Edge log groups across regions

AWS Lambda@Edge functions, which run under CloudFront at multiple edge locations require associated Lambda functions to exist within each AWS region.

By design, this means CloudWatch Logs produced by Lambda@Edge functions will exist across these regions.

This Bash script will query for all log groups associated to Lambda@Edge functions for each enabled region of the current AWS account to hopefully help determine where logs are going/exist.

Delete all AWS S3 bucket versioned objects and delete markers.

Delete all S3 versioned objects and delete markers

Quick and dirty Bash script to iterate an S3 bucket and remove all object versions and delete markers.

Probably only usable on buckets with a few hundred version objects maximum, otherwise it might be more efficient and time effective to use a lifecycle rule to age out and remove objects in bulk.
