put-lifecycle-configuration

Description

Use this action to manage EFS lifecycle management and intelligent tiering. A LifecycleConfiguration consists of one or more LifecyclePolicy objects that define the following:

  • EFS Lifecycle management - When Amazon EFS automatically transitions files in a file system into the lower-cost Infrequent Access (IA) storage class. To enable EFS Lifecycle management, set the value of TransitionToIA to one of the available options.
  • EFS Intelligent tiering - When Amazon EFS automatically transitions files from IA back into the file system's primary storage class (Standard or One Zone Standard. To enable EFS Intelligent Tiering, set the value of TransitionToPrimaryStorageClass to AFTER_1_ACCESS .

For more information, see EFS Lifecycle Management .

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 turns off lifecycle management and intelligent tiering for the file system.

In the request, specify the following:

  • The ID for the file system for which you are enabling, disabling, or modifying lifecycle management and intelligent tiering.
  • A LifecyclePolicies array of LifecyclePolicy objects that define when files are moved into IA storage, and when they are moved back to Standard storage.

Note

Amazon EFS requires that each LifecyclePolicy object have only have a single transition, so the LifecyclePolicies array needs to be structured with separate LifecyclePolicy objects. See the example requests in the following section for more information.

This operation requires permissions for the elasticfilesystem:PutLifecycleConfiguration operation.

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

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 informs EFS lifecycle management and EFS Intelligent-Tiering of the following:

  • When to move files in the file system from primary storage to the IA storage class.
  • When to move files that are in IA storage to primary storage.

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 must be structured as an array of LifecyclePolicy objects, one object for each transition, TransitionToIA , TransitionToPrimaryStorageClass . See the example requests in the following section for more information.

(structure)

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 Intelligent‐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 must be structured as an array of LifecyclePolicy objects, one object for each transition, TransitionToIA , TransitionToPrimaryStorageClass . For more information, see the request examples in PutLifecycleConfiguration .

TransitionToIA -> (string)

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

TransitionToPrimaryStorageClass -> (string)

Describes when to transition a file from IA storage to primary storage. Metadata operations such as listing the contents of a directory don't count as file access events.

Shorthand Syntax:

TransitionToIA=string,TransitionToPrimaryStorageClass=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "TransitionToIA": "AFTER_7_DAYS"|"AFTER_14_DAYS"|"AFTER_30_DAYS"|"AFTER_60_DAYS"|"AFTER_90_DAYS",
    "TransitionToPrimaryStorageClass": "AFTER_1_ACCESS"
  }
  ...
]

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Output

LifecyclePolicies -> (list)

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

(structure)

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 Intelligent‐Tiering and EFS Lifecycle Management .
