How to destroy a Database Lab clone


Database Lab Engine automatically deletes idle unprotected clones after the idle interval which is defined in the configuration. To disable auto-deletion for a particular clone, protect this clone.


The protected clone could not be deleted automatically or manually. In order to delete the clone, you would need to unprotect it.


  1. On the Database Lab clone page click the Destroy button. Database Lab engine page / Create clone
  2. Accept confirmation dialog and wait for it. You will be redirected to the Database Lab instance page.


Before you run any commands, install Database Lab CLI and initialize configuration. For more information, see Install and initialize Database Lab CLI.
