Creating an ILM rule

ILM rules allow you to manage the placement of object data over time. To create an ILM rule, you use the Create ILM Rule wizard.

Before you begin


  1. Select ILM > Rules.
    The ILM Rules page appears, with the stock rule, Make 2 Copies, selected.

    Note: The ILM Rules page looks slightly different if the global Compliance setting has been enabled for the StorageGRID system. The summary table includes a Compliant column, and the details for the selected rule include a Compliance Compatible field.
  2. Click Create.
    Step 1 of the Create ILM Rule wizard appears. You use the Define basics page to define which objects the rule applies to.
