Creating and managing a lifecycle rule by using the Amazon Web Services Management Console

You can use S3 Lifecycle to optimize storage capacity for Amazon S3 on Outposts. You can create lifecycle rules to expire objects as they age or are replaced by newer versions. You can create, enable, disable, or delete a lifecycle rule.

For more information about S3 Lifecycle, see Managing your storage lifecycle.

Note

The Amazon Web Services account that creates the bucket owns it and is the only one that can create, enable, disable, or delete a lifecycle rule.

To create and manage a lifecycle rule for an S3 on Outposts by using the Amazon Web Services Management Console, see the following topics.

Creating a lifecycle rule

  1. Sign in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console and open the Amazon S3 console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/s3/.

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Outposts buckets.

  3. Choose the Outposts bucket that you want to create a lifecycle rule for.

  4. Choose the Management tab, and then choose Create Lifecycle rule.

  5. Enter a value for Lifecycle rule name.

  6. Under Rule scope, choose one of the following options:

    • To limit the scope to specific filters, choose Limit the scope of this rule using one or more filters. Then, add a prefix filter, tags, or object size.

    • To apply the rule to all objects in the bucket, choose Apply to all objects in the bucket.

  7. Under Lifecycle rule actions, choose one of the following options:

    • Expire current versions of objects – For versioning-enabled buckets, S3 on Outposts adds a delete marker and retains the objects as noncurrent versions. For buckets that don't use S3 Versioning, S3 on Outposts permanently deletes the objects.

    • Permanently delete noncurrent versions of objects – S3 on Outposts permanently deletes noncurrent versions of objects.

    • Delete expired object delete markers or incomplete multipart uploads – S3 on Outposts permanently deletes expired object delete markers or incomplete multipart uploads.

      If you limit the scope of your Lifecycle rule by using object tags, you can't choose Delete expired object delete markers. You also can't choose Delete expired object delete markers if you choose Expire current object versions.

    Note

    Size-based filters can't be used with delete markers and incomplete multipart uploads.

  8. If you chose Expire current versions of objects or Permanently delete noncurrent versions of objects, configure the rule trigger based on a specific date or the object's age.

  9. If you chose Delete expired object delete markers, to confirm that you want to delete expired object delete markers, select Delete expired object delete markers.

  10. Under Timeline Summary, review your Lifecycle rule, and choose Create rule.
