Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) PutLifecycleConfiguration API operation.

Syntax

Write-S3LifecycleConfiguration
-BucketName <String>
-Configuration_Rule <LifecycleRule[]>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Creates a new lifecycle configuration for the bucket or replaces an existing lifecycle configuration. For information about lifecycle configuration, see Managing Access Permissions to Your Amazon S3 Resources. Bucket lifecycle configuration now supports specifying a lifecycle rule using an object key name prefix, one or more object tags, or a combination of both. Accordingly, this section describes the latest API. The previous version of the API supported filtering based only on an object key name prefix, which is supported for backward compatibility. For the related API description, see PutBucketLifecycle. Rules You specify the lifecycle configuration in your request body. The lifecycle configuration is specified as XML consisting of one or more rules. Each rule consists of the following:
  • Filter identifying a subset of objects to which the rule applies. The filter can be based on a key name prefix, object tags, or a combination of both.
  • Status whether the rule is in effect.
  • One or more lifecycle transition and expiration actions that you want Amazon S3 to perform on the objects identified by the filter. If the state of your bucket is versioning-enabled or versioning-suspended, you can have many versions of the same object (one current version and zero or more noncurrent versions). Amazon S3 provides predefined actions that you can specify for current and noncurrent object versions.
For more information, see Object Lifecycle Management and Lifecycle Configuration Elements. Permissions By default, all Amazon S3 resources are private, including buckets, objects, and related subresources (for example, lifecycle configuration and website configuration). Only the resource owner (that is, the AWS account that created it) can access the resource. The resource owner can optionally grant access permissions to others by writing an access policy. For this operation, a user must get the s3:PutLifecycleConfiguration permission. You can also explicitly deny permissions. Explicit deny also supersedes any other permissions. If you want to block users or accounts from removing or deleting objects from your bucket, you must deny them permissions for the following actions:
  • s3:DeleteObject
  • s3:DeleteObjectVersion
  • s3:PutLifecycleConfiguration
For more information about permissions, see Managing Access Permissions to Your Amazon S3 Resources. The following are related to PutBucketLifecycleConfiguration:

Parameters

-BucketName <String>
The name of the bucket to have the lifecycle configuration applied.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-Configuration_Rule <LifecycleRule[]>
These rules defined the lifecycle configuration.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesConfiguration_Rules
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the BucketName parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^BucketName' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The cmdlet doesn't have a return value by default. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.S3.Model.PutLifecycleConfigurationResponse). Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AWSProfileName, StoredCredentials
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases SecretAccessKey, SK
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases ST
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases RegionToCall
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the BucketName parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet does not generate any output.The service response (type Amazon.S3.Model.PutLifecycleConfigurationResponse) can be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.

Examples

Example 1

$NewRule = [Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleRule] @{
Expiration = @{
Days= 50
}
Id = "Test-From-Write-cmdlet-1"
Filter= @{
LifecycleFilterPredicate = [Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleAndOperator]@{
Operands= @(
[Amazon.S3.Model.LifecyclePrefixPredicate] @{
"Prefix" = "py"
},
[Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleTagPredicate] @{
"Tag"= @{
"Key" = "non-use"
"Value" = "yes"
}
}
)
}
}
"Status"= 'Enabled'
NoncurrentVersionExpiration = @{
NoncurrentDays = 75
}
}

Write-S3LifecycleConfiguration -BucketName my-review-scrap -Configuration_Rule $NewRule
This example writes / replaces the configuration provided in the $NewRule. This configuration is making sure to limit the scope objects with given prefix and tag values.

Example 2

$ExpireRule = [Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleRule] @{
Expiration = @{
Days= 150
}
Id = "Remove-in-150-days"
Filter= @{
LifecycleFilterPredicate = [Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleAndOperator]@{
Operands= @(
[Amazon.S3.Model.LifecyclePrefixPredicate] @{
"Prefix" = "py"
},
[Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleTagPredicate] @{
"Tag"= @{
"Key" = "archived"
"Value" = "yes"
}
}
)
}
}
Status= 'Enabled'
NoncurrentVersionExpiration = @{
NoncurrentDays = 150
}
}

$ArchiveRule = [Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleRule] @{
Expiration = $null
Id = "Archive-to-Glacier-in-30-days"
Filter= @{
LifecycleFilterPredicate = [Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleAndOperator]@{
Operands= @(
[Amazon.S3.Model.LifecyclePrefixPredicate] @{
"Prefix" = "py"
},
[Amazon.S3.Model.LifecycleTagPredicate] @{
"Tag"= @{
"Key" = "reviewed"
"Value" = "yes"
}
}
)
}
}
Status = 'Enabled'
NoncurrentVersionExpiration = @{
NoncurrentDays = 75
}
Transitions = @(
@{
Days = 30
"StorageClass"= 'Glacier'
},
@{
Days = 120
"StorageClass"= [Amazon.S3.S3StorageClass]::DeepArchive
}
)
}

Write-S3LifecycleConfiguration -BucketName my-review-scrap -Configuration_Rule $ExpireRule,$ArchiveRule
This example sets multiple rules with filtering. $ArchiveRule sets the objects to archive in 30 days to Glacier and 120 to DeepArchive. $ExpireRule expires both current and previous versions in 150 days for objects with 'py' prefix and tag:key 'archieved' set to 'yes'.
