Add a tag to deleted content, So customer can run an S3 policy to remove deleted items/orphaned nodes

Description

Customer needs us to add a tag to any deleted item stored in S3 so it can be found, and deleted by their S3 admins. Customer has requested the Hot Fix before end of Q1 2021, subject to design and discussion.

Customer use case:

  • For any S3 bucket, they do not grant delete to the IM/application nodes where the role is blocked to delete. They don’t do this as it adds high risk, so IM roles aren’t allowed to delete.

  • Currently when a user deletes an item, customer has a 30 day clean up process runs however because this creates orphan nodes in S3 as they’re not been deleted. If there was a e-Discovery request this content could be discovered and they would have a legal liability.

  • The Hot Fix would tags content, then they can run an S3 policy that runs outside of IM policy and delete those items tagged (orphans) monthly. This allows them to either totally delete or delete versions.

Enhancement request https://alfresco.atlassian.net/browse/MNT-21887

Please let Steve Blair, John Iball know when there is an estimate so they can discuss with customer.

Hi this work needs to be coordinated / aligned with in eng-team-seven as we need to make sure this gets merged into the S3 3.1 train for a 3.1.1 and into the S3 train for a 3.2 which will support ACS 7.0? If you’re unsure speak with and for the additional work as there will need to be a DOCS ticket for it as well.

Hi that sounds just like what FINRA (and others) want from us. If agrees we should go with your approach.
