Syntax

The mc ilm rm command removes an object lifecycle management rule from a MinIO Bucket.

The following command removes a single lifecycle management rule from the mydata bucket on the myminio MinIO deployment:

mc ilm rm --id "bgrt1ghju" myminio/mydata

The command has the following syntax:

mc [GLOBALFLAGS] ilm rm                          \
                 --id "string" | (--all --force) \
                 ALIAS                           \
  • Brackets [] indicate optional parameters.

  • Parameters sharing a line are mutually dependent.

  • Parameters seperated using the pipe | operator are mutually exclusive.

Copy the example to a text editor and modify as-needed before running the command in the terminal/shell.

Examples

Remove a Bucket Lifecycle Management Rule

Behavior

S3 Compatibility

The mc commandline tool is built for compatibility with the AWS S3 API and is tested MinIO and AWS S3 for expected functionality and behavior.

MinIO provides no guarantees for other S3-compatible services, as their S3 API implementation is unknown and therefore unsupported. While mc commands may work as documented, any such usage is at your own risk.
