What are the different types of actions in Object Lifecycle Management in Amazon S3?

There are mainly two types of Object Lifecycle Management actions in Amazon S3.

  • Transition Actions: These actions define the state when an Object transitions from one storage class to another storage class. E.g. a new object may transition to STANDARD_IA (infrequent access) class after 60 days of creation. And it can transition to GLACIER after 180 days of creation.
  • Expiration Actions: These actions specify what happens when an Object expires. We can ask S3 to delete an object completely on expiration.
