Storage account docs retention

vshah804 1 Reputation point

Hello Team, I have a lot docs in storage account file share services. How do we set the retention policy in those docs along with the notification? E.x : From the upload date, I want to send the notification to end use saying that in 2 weeks the document will be deleted. So how do I set up those kind of notification and how to delete the actual documents based on the retention period? Thanks.

    Thanks Vaibhav. Does this storage-lifecycle-management-concepts applies to blob (Containers) storage only or It applies to file shares in the storage account as well? Thanks.
