Creating a retention class

  1. In the Retention Classes panel, click Create Retention Class.

  2. In the Retention Class Name field, type a name for the retention class.

    Retention class names must be from one through 64 characters long, can contain only alphanumeric characters, hyphens (-), and underscores (_), and are not case sensitive.
  3. Take one of these actions:

    • To make the retention class value an offset, in the Retention Method field, select Offset. In the Years field, type a number of years. In the Months field, type a number of months. In the Days field, type a number of days.

      Valid values are integers in the range zero through 9,999.

    • To make the retention class value a special value, in the Retention Method field, select Special Value. In the Special Value field, select the special value you want.
    • To make the retention class a fixed date, in the Retention Method field, select Fixed Date. In the Fixed Date field, type the date you want. The date format is mm/dd/yyyy.
  4. (Optional) In the Description field, type a description of the retention class.

    The description can be up to 1,024 characters long and can contain any valid UTF-8 characters, including white space.
  5. (Optional) Select Allow Disposition service to delete objects when expired to have HCP automatically delete expired objects in the retention class.

    This option is present only when the retention method is offset.
  6. Click Create Retention Class.
