S3CMD Policy runtime?

Does anyone know how often the policy runs? I’ve set up a policy to delete files over a certain age and I’m not sure how often it will run/when.

Hello @seankannegiesser

Are you looking for a way to automate the policy runs? You can execute the policy manually with s3cmd using the following commands.

  1. s3cmd setpolicy policy s3://my-bucket

To get the info about the bucket you can run:

  1. s3cmd info s3://my-bucket

This should list any active policies.

Hope that this helps!
