mc legalhold info

Syntax

The mc legalhold info command returns the current legal hold setting for an object or objects.

mc legalhold requires that the specified bucket has object locking enabled. You can only enable object locking at bucket creation. See mc mb --with-lock for documentation on creating buckets with object locking enabled.

The following command retrieves the current legalhold status for objects in the mydata bucket on the myminio MinIO deployment:

mc legalhold info --recursive myminio/mydata

The command has the following syntax:

mc [GLOBALFLAGS] legalhold info  \
                 [--recursive]   \
                 [--rewind]      \
                 [--version-id]  \
                 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.

Parameters

ALIAS

Required The MinIO alias and path to the object or objects on which to enable the legal hold. For example:

mc legalhold info play/mybucket/myobjects/objects.txt
--recursive, r

Returns the legal hold status of all objects in the ALIAS bucket or bucket prefix.

--rewind

Optional Directs mc legalhold info to operate only on the object version(s) that existed at specified point-in-time.

  • To rewind to a specific date in the past, specify the date as an ISO8601-formatted timestamp. For example: --rewind "2020.03.24T10:00".

  • To rewind a duration in time, specify the duration as a string in #d#hh#mm#ss format. For example: --rewind "1d2hh3mm4ss".

--rewind requires that the specified ALIAS be an S3-compatible service that supports Bucket Versioning. For MinIO deployments, use mc version to enable or disable bucket versioning.

--version-id, vid

Optional Directs mc legalhold info to operate only on the specified object version.

--version-id requires that the specified ALIAS be an S3-compatible service that supports Bucket Versioning. For MinIO deployments, use mc version to enable or disable bucket versioning.

Global Flags

This command supports any of the global flags.

Examples

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.
