AWS::S3::Bucket NoncurrentVersionExpiration - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::S3::Bucket NoncurrentVersionExpiration

Specifies when noncurrent object versions expire. Upon expiration, Amazon S3 permanently deletes the noncurrent object versions. You set this lifecycle configuration action on a bucket that has versioning enabled (or suspended) to request that Amazon S3 delete noncurrent object versions at a specific period in the object's lifetime. For more information about setting a lifecycle rule configuration, see AWS::S3::Bucket Rule.
