glacier-vault-remove

This tool can help you remove an Amazon Glacier vault, even if it's not empty.

It will remove all archives contained inside the vault, and then remove the vault itself.

It is intended to work well with vaults containing a lot of archives. I developed it because my vault contained more than 500'000 archives, and all other softwares crashed when I tried to remove all of them.

Install

Docker

If you have docker installed, you can easily run the script using the leeroyb/glacier-vault-remove image available on Docker Hub:

docker run -v /ABSOLUTE_LOCAL_PATH_TO/credentials.json:/app/credentials.json -d leeroyb/glacier-vault-remove <region-name> [<vault-name>|LIST] [DEBUG] [NUM_PROCESSES] [<job_id>|LIST|NEW|LATEST]

Make sure you use the full absolute path to credentials.json (see below), relative paths do not work here.

Without Docker

You can clone or download this repository and install the dependencies (boto3) by calling the install script :

python setup.py install

Configure

Then create a credentials.json file in the same directory as removeVault.py (or anywhere on your filesystem if using Docker) :

{
	"AWSAccessKeyId": "YOURACCESSKEY",
	"AWSSecretKey":   "YOURSECRETKEY"
}

Use

You can then use the script like this :

python removeVault.py <region-name> [<vault-name>|LIST] [DEBUG] [NUM_PROCESSES] [<job_id>|LIST|NEW|LATEST]

Example :

python removeVault.py eu-west-1 my_vault

Multiple processes

If you want to perform the removal using multiple processes (4 processes here) :

python removeVault.py <region-name> <vault-name> 4

List vaults

If you don't know the vault name, you can generate a list like this:

python removeVault.py <region-name> LIST

Inventory retrieval jobs

A vault inventory is necessary to remove all the archives inside of it. By default, we will look for an existing inventory and use it. If there is none, we will initiate a new one.

You can change this behavior using the job_id argument, with the following values:

  • LATEST (default): use the latest inventory available, or initiate a new one if there is none
  • NEW: force initiating a new inventory retrieval job
  • LIST: list the inventory retrieval jobs availables
  • <job_id>: give a specific job ID to use

For example to force a new inventory:

python removeVault.py <region-name> <vault-name> NEW

If you want to use 4 processes to remove the archives AND force a new inventory:

python removeVault.py <region-name> <vault-name> 4 NEW

Debug

By default, only the INFO messages will be printed to console. You can add a third argument "DEBUG" to the removeVault.py script if you want to show all messages.

Example :

python removeVault.py <region-name> <vault-name> DEBUG

Building the Docker image

If for whatever reason you don't want to use the leeroyb/glacier-vault-remove image on Docker Hub, you can also build the image yourself from this repository.

  1. Make sure you have docker installed
  2. Clone or download this repository
  3. Build the image:
docker build -t glacier-vault-remove .
  1. Create a credentials.json as described above

  2. Run the tool in the docker container:

docker run -v /path/to/credentials.json:/app/credentials.json glacier-vault-remove <region> <vault|LIST> [DEBUG] [NUM_PROCESSES] [<job_id>|LIST|NEW|LATEST]

Make sure you use the full absolute path to credentials.json, relative paths do not work here.
