Have you encountered an error such as the one below?
Export my-stack-1:ExportsOutputRefMyResource6724B74E921810D3 cannot be deleted as it is in use by my-stack-2
This is because:
- A resource created by my-stack-1.py has created an export
- my-stack-2.py is using this export in one of it’s resources
- You are attempting to change or remove the resource in my-stack-1.py, altering the export
How can this error be worked around?
One method would be to tear down my-stack-2, update my-stack-1, then re-deploy my-stack-2. This would be slow and is not a good solution.
A better solution is provided in this GitHub issue.
#Deploy only my-stack-2, removing updating or removing the dependency cdk deploy -e my-stack-2 #Deploy all stacks, creating the new output and updating my-stack-2 again with the correct output
