Define Retention policy to delete data


I need a policy in Ranger or some other component which would delete my data automatically after a set period. How can I do that in Ranger ? I didn't see any examples where I could define a way to delete content from HDFS path automatically.


@Harjit Singh

Ranger cannot perform this tasks.

Apache Falcon is the one which can do work (however Falcon is deprecated as of HDP2.6.5 and DLM has these features now):


Hope this helps.


Thanks for the answer that helps
