Custom Github Action to delete Equinix Metal resources

Delete Equinix Metal projects & resources from your GitHub Actions workflows

What is it?

metal-sweeper-action is a custom GitHub Action that enables you to automatically delete an Equinix Metal project--including devices and networks running inside the project--from your GitHub Actions workflows. When you use this in conjunction with metal-project-action, you can easily run automated tests against real infrastructure while controlling costs.

Why we love it

  • Cost optimization: By automatically cleaning up after your CI/CD workflows, metal-sweeper-action helps you avoid unnecessary charges for forgotten test infrastructure
  • Resource isolation: When you use this in conjunction with metal-project-action, you can easily run automated tests against real infrastructure without impacting your production environment

How do you use it?
