Removing an application will terminate any relations that application has, remove all units of the application, and in the case that this leaves machines with no running applications, Juju will also remove the machine. For this reason, you should retrieve any logs or data required from applications and units before removing them. Removing units which are co-located with units of other charms or a Juju controller will not result in the removal of the machine.

Sometimes, the removal of the application may fail as Juju encounters errors and failures that need to be dealt with before an application can be removed. For example, Juju will not remove an application if there are hook failures. However, at times, there is a need to remove an application ignoring all operational errors. In these rare cases, use --force option but note that --force will also remove all units of the application, its subordinates and, potentially, machines without given them the opportunity to shutdown cleanly.

Application removal is a multi-step process. Under normal circumstances, Juju will not proceed to the next step until the current step has finished. However, when using --force, users can also specify --no-wait to progress through steps without delay waiting for each step to complete.
