There is a limit to the number of repositories you can have in any given region in a tenancy. So when you no longer need a repository, it makes sense to delete it from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry.
Your permissions control the repositories in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry that you can delete. You can delete repositories you've created, and from repositories that the groups to which you belong have been granted access by identity policies. If you belong to the Administrators group, you can delete any repository in the tenancy.
Using the Console
To delete a repository from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry:
- In the Console, open the navigation menu. Under Solutions and Platform, go to Developer Services and click Registry.
- Choose the registry's region. You see all the repositories in the registry to which you have access.
- Click the name of the repository that you want to delete.
- Click Delete on the Summary page and confirm that you want to delete the repository.
The repository is permanently removed from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry.
