Object Storage lets you define the actions automatically applied to individual objects or groups of objects in the bucket at specified points in time.
Types of actions:
- Change the storage class of objects.
- Delete objects.
- Deleting incomplete multipart uploads.
You can only configure object lifecycles for each individual bucket. You can't configure lifecycles for a bucket group, folder, or cloud.
To manage object lifecycles, you can use:
This way you can manage lifecycle configurations using tools that support Amazon S3 HTTP API.
When you manage lifecycles via the Amazon S3-compatible HTTP API, define the configuration in XML format. Different tools may require different configuration formats, see the example for the AWS CLI in Managing lifecycles of object in buckets.
