Understanding the retention class list

The Retention Classes panel lists the retention classes defined for a namespace. For each class, the list shows:

  • The retention class name.
  • Whether the retention class value is an offset, special value, or fixed date.
  • The retention class value.

    A value that’s an offset has this format:


    In this format, y is the number of years, m is the number of months, and d is the number of days. Only the measurement units with nonzero values are shown. For example, an offset of two years and 5 days looks like this:

  • Whether expired objects in the retention class are automatically deleted (Allow Disposition).
