Request Syntax

response = client.create_rule(
    RetentionPeriod={
        'RetentionPeriodValue': 123,
        'RetentionPeriodUnit': 'DAYS'
    },
    Description='string',
    Tags=[
        {
            'Key': 'string',
            'Value': 'string'
        },

Parameters:
  • RetentionPeriod (dict) –

    [REQUIRED]

    Information about the retention period for which the retention rule is to retain resources.

    • RetentionPeriodValue (integer) – [REQUIRED]

      The period value for which the retention rule is to retain resources. The period is measured using the unit specified for RetentionPeriodUnit.

    • RetentionPeriodUnit (string) – [REQUIRED]

      The unit of time in which the retention period is measured. Currently, only DAYS is supported.

  • Description (string) – The retention rule description.

  • Tags (list) –

    Information about the tags to assign to the retention rule.

    • (dict) –

      Information about the tags to assign to the retention rule.

      • Key (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The tag key.

      • Value (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The tag value.

  • ResourceType (string) –

    [REQUIRED]

    The resource type to be retained by the retention rule. Currently, only Amazon EBS snapshots and EBS-backed AMIs are supported. To retain snapshots, specify EBS_SNAPSHOT. To retain EBS-backed AMIs, specify EC2_IMAGE.

  • ResourceTags (list) –

    Specifies the resource tags to use to identify resources that are to be retained by a tag-level retention rule. For tag-level retention rules, only deleted resources, of the specified resource type, that have one or more of the specified tag key and value pairs are retained. If a resource is deleted, but it does not have any of the specified tag key and value pairs, it is immediately deleted without being retained by the retention rule.

    You can add the same tag key and value pair to a maximum or five retention rules.

    To create a Region-level retention rule, omit this parameter. A Region-level retention rule does not have any resource tags specified. It retains all deleted resources of the specified resource type in the Region in which the rule is created, even if the resources are not tagged.

    • (dict) –

      Information about the resource tags used to identify resources that are retained by the retention rule.

      • ResourceTagKey (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The tag key.

      • ResourceTagValue (string) –

        The tag value.

  • LockConfiguration (dict) –

    Information about the retention rule lock configuration.

    • UnlockDelay (dict) – [REQUIRED]

      Information about the retention rule unlock delay.

      • UnlockDelayValue (integer) – [REQUIRED]

        The unlock delay period, measured in the unit specified for UnlockDelayUnit.

      • UnlockDelayUnit (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The unit of time in which to measure the unlock delay. Currently, the unlock delay can be measure only in days.

Return type:
