LifecyclePolicy - Amazon Elastic File System

LifecyclePolicy

Describes a policy used by EFS lifecycle management and EFS intelligent tiering that specifies when to transition files into and out of the file system's Infrequent Access (IA) storage class. For more information, see EFS Intelligentā€Tiering and EFS Lifecycle Management.

Note

When using the put-lifecycle-configuration CLI command or the PutLifecycleConfiguration API action, Amazon EFS requires that each LifecyclePolicy object have only a single transition. This means that in a request body, LifecyclePolicies needs to be structured as an array of LifecyclePolicy objects, one object for each transition, TransitionToIA, TransitionToPrimaryStorageClass. For more information, see the request examples in PutLifecycleConfiguration .
