How to delete an organization

i’m just getting started with hosted chef and i would like to delete my
organization and start over.

David,

You cannot delete your organization through knife or the management
console, but you can contact support@getchef.com and they can take care of
it for you.

Thanks,

David,

That’s fine, you can create as many organizations as you need. Not sure I
understand what you mean by “get it right”, though.

I’m on the same page as Nathan. While there’s nothing stopping you from
from creating multiple orgs in Hosted Chef, what is it that you’re doing
that is putting an org in an unrecoverable state where you feel the need to
delete it all and start anew?

Thanks,
Stephen

thanks so much for taking time to give me some advice.

i have no idea what i did to mess up my organization - but i am in the
middle of learnchef lesson 3 - so i probably did something really
stupid. it is some kind of permission problem. however, it isn’t in your
face obvious, because all the web site tabs on the organization that
doesn’t work look the same as the new one that does work.

since new organizations don’t seem to be a problem, i think i’ll move on
with my new organization - try to maintain my enthusiasm - and finish
lesson 3. after i finish all 5 lessons, maybe it will be obvious to me
what stupid thing i did and i can come back to it.
