Compliance workflow

The workflow diagram shows the high-level steps for creating and managing S3 buckets that are compliant. You must coordinate closely with the grid administrator if you plan to create compliant buckets in order to ensure that the objects in those buckets are protected in a manner that meets regulatory requirements.

Before any compliant buckets can be created, the grid administrator must enable the global Compliance setting for the entire StorageGRID Webscale system. The grid administrator is also responsible for maintaining the information lifecycle management (ILM) rules that will be used to protect the object data in your compliant buckets. For details, see information about managing S3 buckets and objects in the instructions for administering StorageGRID Webscale.

Once the global Compliance setting has been enabled, you can create compliant buckets using the Tenant Manager, the Tenant Management API, or the S3 REST API.
