put-lifecycle-configuration

Description

Enables lifecycle management by creating a new LifecycleConfiguration object. A LifecycleConfiguration object defines when files in an Amazon EFS file system are automatically transitioned to the lower-cost EFS Infrequent Access (IA) storage class. A LifecycleConfiguration applies to all files in a file system.

Each Amazon EFS file system supports one lifecycle configuration, which applies to all files in the file system. If a LifecycleConfiguration object already exists for the specified file system, a PutLifecycleConfiguration call modifies the existing configuration. A PutLifecycleConfiguration call with an empty LifecyclePolicies array in the request body deletes any existing LifecycleConfiguration and disables lifecycle management.

In the request, specify the following:

  • The ID for the file system for which you are enabling, disabling, or modifying lifecycle management.
  • A LifecyclePolicies array of LifecyclePolicy objects that define when files are moved to the IA storage class. The array can contain only one LifecyclePolicy item.

This operation requires permissions for the elasticfilesystem:PutLifecycleConfiguration operation.

To apply a LifecycleConfiguration object to an encrypted file system, you need the same AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) permissions as when you created the encrypted file system.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  put-lifecycle-configuration
--file-system-id <value>
--lifecycle-policies <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--file-system-id (string)

The ID of the file system for which you are creating the LifecycleConfiguration object (String).

--lifecycle-policies (list)

An array of LifecyclePolicy objects that define the file system's LifecycleConfiguration object. A LifecycleConfiguration object tells lifecycle management when to transition files from the Standard storage class to the Infrequent Access storage class.

Shorthand Syntax:

TransitionToIA=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "TransitionToIA": "AFTER_14_DAYS"|"AFTER_30_DAYS"|"AFTER_60_DAYS"|"AFTER_90_DAYS"
  }
  ...
]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

LifecyclePolicies -> (list)

An array of lifecycle management policies. Currently, EFS supports a maximum of one policy per file system.

(structure)

Describes a policy used by EFS lifecycle management to transition files to the Infrequent Access (IA) storage class.

TransitionToIA -> (string)

A value that describes the period of time that a file is not accessed, after which it transitions to the IA storage class. Metadata operations such as listing the contents of a directory don't count as file access events.
