Uninstall Elastic Agent

Remove Elastic Agent from a host.

To uninstall Elastic Agent from a host, run the uninstall command from the directory where it's running. Refer to the Fleet and Elastic Agent documentation for more information.

If Agent tamper protection is enabled on the Agent policy for the host, you'll need to include the uninstall token in the command, using the --uninstall-token flag. You can find the uninstall token on the Agent policy or at Fleet -> Uninstall tokens.

For example:

sudo elastic-agent uninstall --uninstall-token 12345678901234567890123456789012
