After you remove an application from the cloud, or if you do not need details for a particular deployment, you can delete the deployment from the Deployments page in vCloud Application Director.

Deleting a deployment from the Deployments page in vCloud Application Director does not delete the deployed application, vApp, and its virtual machines for vCloud Director, vCloud Automation Center virtual machine and the associated virtual machine in vCenter Server, or Amazon EC2 instance from the cloud. To delete an application from the cloud, see Tear Down an Application from the Cloud.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_DEPLOYER deployer role assigned to it.
