Feature #14930

Updated by Lucas Di Pentima about 3 years ago

The use case would be for when sequencers finish uploading to arvados, we can set the timer to delete that data after some designated time period.

Trash/delete times could be specified in 2 ways:
1. Absolute datetime: Could be accepted from a param like @--trash_at YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM@
2. Relative times: Could be accepted from a param like @--trash_after TT@

Both parameters would be mutually exclusive

* For absolute datetimes we can use @python-dateutil@’s parser (https://dateutil.readthedocs.io/en/stable/examples.html#parse-examples)
* For relative times didn’t find any parser but I think it would be simple enough to parse strings like “7[d|days]”, “1[w|week|weeks]” and use dateutil's @relativedelta@ feature to get the absolute datetime: https://dateutil.readthedocs.io/en/stable/relativedelta.html

The relative times should take not of the upload finish process datetime.

When resuming a pre-existing collections, update the trash_at/delete_at fields?
