gcloud compute target-instances delete - delete target instances
gcloud compute target-instances delete NAME [NAME ...] [--zone ZONE] [GLOBAL-FLAG ...]
gcloud compute target-instances delete deletes one or more Google Compute Engine target instances. Target instances can be deleted only if they are not being used by any other resources like forwarding rules.
NAME [NAME ...]The resources to delete.
--zone ZONEThe zone of the resources to delete. If not specified, you will be prompted to select a zone.
To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, you can set the compute/zone property:
$ gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE
A list of zones can be fetched by running:
$ gcloud compute zones list
To unset the property, run:
$ gcloud config unset compute/zone
Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable CLOUDSDK_COMPUTE_ZONE.
Run $ gcloud help for a description of flags available to all commands.
