podman-pod-rm - Remove one or more stopped pods and containers


podman pod rm [options] pod


podman pod rm will remove one or more stopped pods and their containers from the host. The pod name or ID can be used. The -f option stops all containers and then removes them before removing the pod.


--all, -a

Remove all pods. Can be used in conjunction with -f as well.

--ignore, -i

Ignore errors when specified pods are not in the container store. A user might have decided to manually remove a pod which would lead to a failure during the ExecStop directive of a systemd service referencing that pod.

--latest, -l

Instead of providing the pod name or ID, remove the last created pod.

The latest option is not supported on the remote client.

--force, -f

Stop running containers and delete all stopped containers before removal of pod.


Read pod ID from the specified file and remove the pod. Can be specified multiple times.


podman pod rm mywebserverpod

podman pod rm mywebserverpod myflaskserverpod 860a4b23

podman pod rm -f 860a4b23

podman pod rm -f -a

podman pod rm -fa

podman pod rm --pod-id-file /path/to/id/file

Exit Status

0 All specified pods removed

1 One of the specified pods did not exist, and no other failures

2 One of the specified pods is attached to a container

125 The command fails for any other reason
