In Which Scenarios Do I Need to Use Lifecycle Management?

Lifecycle management applies to the following scenarios:

  • Periodically uploaded log files may need to be retained for only one week or one month, and you want to delete these log files after they have expired.
  • Documents are seldom accessed after a certain period of time, and you want to delete these documents.

You can define lifecycle rules for identifying objects and manage lifecycles of the objects based on the rules. After unnecessary files are deleted, less OBS storage space is required, saving your costs.
