rpk cloud byoc uninstall

Uninstall the BYOC plugin.

Redpanda installs an agent service in your BYOC cluster. The agent then provisions infrastructure and, eventually, a full Redpanda cluster. The command downloads the byoc plugin from Redpanda Cloud and can execute many operations.

The BYOC command runs Terraform to create and start the agent. You first need a redpanda-id (or cluster ID); this is used to get the details of how your agent should be provisioned. You can create a BYOC cluster in the Redpanda Cloud UI and then come back to this command to complete the process.

This command deletes your locally-downloaded BYOC managed plugin, if it exists. You generally only need to download the plugin one time to create your cluster, and then you never need the plugin again. You can uninstall it to save a small bit of disk space.
