If you have both write and privileged permissions, you can place an object on hold. An object on hold cannot be deleted, even by a privileged delete operation. Also, you cannot store new versions of an object that is on hold. Holding objects is particularly useful when the objects are needed for legal discovery.

While an object is on hold, you can change its retention setting only by increasing the value. You can also change its shred setting and its ACL. And if the namespace is configured to allow changes to custom metadata for objects under retention, you can change its custom metadata.

If you have both write and privileged permissions, you can also release an object from hold. When an object is released, its previous retention setting is again in effect.

Tip: You can use the HCP Search Console to place multiple objects on hold or release multiple objects at the same time.
