Explicit data expiration questions

I’m looking at cp - Storj DCS and I see the following:

--expires string

optional expiration date of an object. Please use format ( yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ssZhh:mm )

Is there an equivalent switch for the put command?

Can the ls command also print the expiration date?

@Toyoo - Excellent questions. I believe the answers are “no” and “no”, but there isn’t any good reason for either of those. Possibly just no one has needed them yet.

I’ll take a look and see what can be done.


Result: I’ve added those features to uplink put and uplink ls in https://review.dev.storj.io/c/storj/storj/+/4798 and https://review.dev.storj.io/c/storj/storj/+/4799 respectively. If they survive review, they’ll be added to the release.

You can use the patches from those changesets if you want to test it out locally.


Gosh, I wish my workplace used Gerrit, I’m missing it so much. Thank you!
