Procedure

The following procedure provides command-line outputs as examples. Note that output in the user terminal may differ.

To uninstall a CodeReady Workspaces instance from a cluster:

  1. Sign in to the cluster:

    NAME          AGE
    red-hat-codeready-workspaces   27m
  4. Delete the CodeReady Workspaces cluster:

    $ oc delete checluster red-hat-codeready-workspaces
    checluster.org.eclipse.che "red-hat-codeready-workspaces" deleted
  5. Obtain the name of the CodeReady Workspaces cluster service version (CSV) module. The following detects a CSV module named red-hat-codeready-workspaces.v2.3:
