This article describes the Increase Retention Period data retention policy action.
The Increase Retention Period storage policy is implemented to allow increasing the retention period configured on the storage targets.
The new retention setting is updated on the supported storage platforms as well, using the API integration: NetApp SnapLock, EMC Isilon SmartLock, EMC Centera and Hitachi Content Platform.
