[ aws . mediastore ]



Writes an object lifecycle policy to a container. If the container already has an object lifecycle policy, the service replaces the existing policy with the new policy. It takes up to 20 minutes for the change to take effect.

For information about how to construct an object lifecycle policy, see Components of an Object Lifecycle Policy .

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--container-name <value>
--lifecycle-policy <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--container-name (string)

The name of the container that you want to assign the object lifecycle policy to.

--lifecycle-policy (string)

The object lifecycle policy to apply to the container.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To create an object lifecycle policy

The following put-lifecycle-policy example attaches an object lifecycle policy to the specified container. This enables you to specify how long the service should store objects in your container. MediaStore deletes objects in the container once they reach their expiration date, as indicated in the policy, which is in the file named LiveEventsLifecyclePolicy.json.

aws mediastore put-lifecycle-policy \
    --container-name ExampleContainer \
    --lifecycle-policy file://ExampleLifecyclePolicy.json

This command produces no output.

For more information, see Adding an Object Lifecycle Policy to a Container in the AWS Elemental MediaStore User Guide.
