Remove the CloudFormation stack and all related assets (S3 buckets, CloudWatch Log Groups, SSM environment variable parameters) for the current project from AWS completely. By default, removes the staging stack.
Large applications may take several minutes to delete and by default this command times out after 150 seconds. Even if this command times out, deletion may still complete successfully as removal completes asynchronously in the background at AWS. To have this process block until all application resources are removed, use the
--no-timeout flag (see below for more information).

arc deploywith the

[--production]Destroy the production stack of your application. By default, without this flag, the staging stack is removed.
[--force, -f]Force deletion of the application even if it contains DynamoDB tables (
@tables) or S3 bucket containing static assets (
