Retention mode is a property of a namespace that affects which operations are allowed on objects under retention. A namespace can be in either of two retention modes:

  • In compliance mode, objects that are under retention cannot be deleted through any mechanism. Additionally, the duration of a retention class cannot be shortened, and retention classes cannot be deleted.
  • In enterprise mode, users and applications can delete objects under retention if they have specific permission to do so. This is called privileged delete.

    Also in enterprise mode, the duration of a retention class can be shortened, and retention classes can be deleted.
