You can set retention by specifying a date and time in either of these formats:

  • Time in seconds since January 1, 1970, at 00:00:00 UTC. For example:

    The calendar date that corresponds to 1450137600 is Tuesday, December 15, 2015, at 00:00:00 EST.

  • Date and time in this ISO 8601 format:

    In this format, Z represents the offset from UTC and is specified as:


    For example, 2015-11-16T14:27:20-0500 represents the start of the 20th second into 2:27 PM, November 16, 2015, EST.

If you specify certain forms of invalid dates, HCP automatically adjusts the retention setting to make a real date. For example, if you specify 2015-11-33, which is three days past the end of November, HCP changes it to 2015-12-03.
