Delete containers from your Splunk SOAR (On-premises) deployment

Use the delete_containers.pyc script to remove containers from their Splunk SOAR (On-premises) deployment. Removing containers should only be done in compliance with your organization's legal and policy requirements for data retention.

Removing containers cannot be undone. The only way to recover containers is to restore your Splunk SOAR (On-premises) deployment from a backup.

Example: To delete all containers with the "test" label last updated before January 1, 2020 at 12:00:00 UTC:

phenv python /opt/phantom/bin/delete_containers.pyc --label test --before "2020-01-01T12:00:00Z"

Use these arguments for the delete_containers.pyc script to apply controls to the script.

Argument Description
-h, --help Show this help message and exit the script.
-b, --list-labels List the available container labels and exit the script.
-d, --dry-run Do not delete any containers, just show the results from the command. Use this option to test your command input before executing the script.
--non-interactive Do not block script execution for user input. Use this flag for running delete_containers.pyc as part of an unsupervised script.
