Falcon retention policy

avatar

Hello,

I have got one question regarding how Falcon implements retention policy for feed instances. I have observed that the retention policy action(i.e. DELETE in my case) is executed only within the dataset's validity interval. It means that several instances (how many it depends of the dataset's frequency) close to end of dataset's validity are kept forever even when some retention is defined.

Is it as expected or I am doing something wrong?

Thanks for any input,

Regards,

Pavel

Hi Balu,

thanks for your answer. My understanding of retention is that all instances older that the retention period would be deleted no matter whether dataset is valid or not. However I am not saying that is the only possible interpretation. Possibly the existing behavior could be useful in some use case. If so, maybe you can introduce the new 'retention action' such as 'delete-always' to handle such situation. This way the change will be also backward compatible and will not change existing Falcon behavior.
