Deleting a Project

Delete a project in Data Science.

To delete a project, it can't be associated with any Data Science resources. Before you can start to delete a project, you must first delete the notebook session and models associated with the project.

The state of the project becomes Deleting during the delete project operation. The service checks for the absence of associated resources. If successful, the project status is updated to Deleted.

The delete project action is asynchronous and starts a work request. You can use the work request to track the status of an operation. For general information about using work requests in OCI, see Work Requests and the Work Requests API.


Deleted projects exist in lists for 30 days after being deleted.

    1. Use the Console to sign in to a tenancy with the necessary policies.
    2. Open the navigation menu and click Analytics & AI. Under Machine Learning, click Data Science.
    3. Select the compartment that contains the projects that you want to delete.

      All projects in the compartment are listed.

    4. Click the name of the project.

      The project details page opens and lists the notebook sessions.

    5. Click Delete.
    6. Enter the name of the project exactly as it appears, and then click Delete.
