Amazon Redshift
API Reference (API Version 2012-12-01)

ModifySnapshotCopyRetentionPeriod

Modifies the number of days to retain snapshots in the destination AWS Region after they are copied from the source AWS Region. By default, this operation only changes the retention period of copied automated snapshots. The retention periods for both new and existing copied automated snapshots are updated with the new retention period. You can set the manual option to change only the retention periods of copied manual snapshots. If you set this option, only newly copied manual snapshots have the new retention period.

Request Parameters

RetentionPeriod

The number of days to retain automated snapshots in the destination AWS Region after they are copied from the source AWS Region.

Constraints: Must be at least 1 and no more than 35 for automated snapshots.

If you specify the manual option, only newly copied manual snapshots will have the new retention period.

If you specify the value of -1 newly copied manual snapshots are retained indefinitely.
