You can now enable deletion protection for your Amazon DocumentDB clusters to help you prevent against accidental deletion of a cluster. When a cluster is configured with deletion protection, the cluster cannot be deleted by any user. Deletion protection is available for Amazon DocumentDB in all supported regions.
Deletion protection is now enabled by default in the Amazon DocumentDB management console. You can also turn on or off deletion protection for an existing cluster with a few clicks in the Amazon DocumentDB management console or using the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). Deletion protection is enforced by management console, AWS CLI, and AWS CloudFormation.
