The HCP retention mode of a namespace is either enterprise or compliance. You can change a namespace in enterprise mode to compliance mode, but you cannot do the reverse.

If a tenant is not allowed to create namespaces in compliance mode, the retention mode setting is not available for its namespaces.

When you change the HCP retention mode of a namespace from enterprise to compliance, you have no guarantee that objects that should have been retained were not already deleted.

Important: Changing the retention mode of a namespace may violate local regulations regarding data retention. Before taking this action, be sure you understand the implications.
