Question

DO Spaces Dashboard - Directory date last modified not shown

We have a Digital Ocean Spaces bucket where we store Laravel backups. We create a directory project-backups. In there we have staging and production backups and in one of those we show backed up project name and inside we show the objects made for that project.

The issue is that the project name like project-290 does not show LastModified for the contents of that directory in the Spaces dashboard. Only the objects do. So we are forced to enter the directory to see if that project has had its backup made

Is there a way to show dates for created OR modified for these directories as we’ll?

Hey @jasper,

Great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!

Reading https://stackoverflow.com/questions/32830423/how-do-i-get-the-last-modified-date-of-a-directory-in-amazon-s3 it seems these are objects that do not get a date modified

Since what we label as a directory is just part of the object name, there is no creation time, modify time, etc. since it does not really exist as an entity on its own

That is a shame as it would be nice to see the latest backup added to that object label. But not sure if this is possible another way then.
