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 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 XX@ (where XX is number of days) XXh@

Both parameters would be mutually exclusive. exclusive

The accepted format for * For absolute datetimes would be the one described at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601 we can use @python-dateutil@’s parser (https://dateutil.readthedocs.io/en/stable/examples.html#parse-examples)
The accepted * For relative time parameter unit will times didn’t find any parser but I think it would be number of days (to be converted simple enough to amount of seconds) parse strings like “7[d|days]”, “1[w|week|weeks], etc.” and it should take into account possible timezone changes. use dateutil's @relativedelta@ feature to get the absolute datetime: https://dateutil.readthedocs.io/en/stable/relativedelta.html

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

When uploading using the "rsync mode", it should resuming a pre-existing collections, update the trash_at value when checkpointing. trash_at/delete_at fields?
