S3 support for Urbancode Deploy Archived Version Artifacts

Hi Team, Please provide S3 storage support for Urbancode Deploy Archived version artifacts. For a large enterprise, there are requirements to keep data for a certain number of years. With growing adoption of DevOps file system storage is not enough as there are limitations on the storage limit. For archives also, please allow S3 as a storage solution. This would help us solve the storage limit issue and speed up the data transfer rate. Thanks.

    Hi Osman and team,

    Can you please officially document the suggested steps in the knowledge center if the idea is currently not under consideration? Can IBM provide official support if we do it the suggested way? Please confirm.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    We have found a workaround to use mounting S3 bucket into a directory and to use this directory as target for UCD archive settings. It should be also possible to automatically create a new bucket every x time (daily, weekly, monthly, your choice) and switch from old bucket to new one.

    To restore just remount the needed bucket and restore from it then switch back to actual bucket.

    rclone is a well known tool to achieve thise

    Same is possible without mounting just using your prefered archiving/backup tool to move away older versions of your archives and if needed you can restore it back to its given location.

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.
