You may wish to remove some content from an overlay you reference. The technique below shows how to remove a number of items using a label. This approach scales more easily than removing specific objects, but needs more care to ensure it does not remove too much.
Create an overlay structure as described in Customize ESS.
Add the customization:
#kustomization.yaml ... patches: - target: labelSelector: role=logging patch: |- $patch: delete kind: not-important metadata: name: not-important
