If you set a versioning container for the old objects to the existing container, the versioning process for all the objects registered to that container will always be carried out automatically.

When objects are registered to the container targeted for the versioning process, the old objects are renamed according to specific naming conventions and moved to the versioning container. If you delete the most recent object, the preceding object is moved from the versioning container to the original container. The object name is then changed to the original object name.

Starting the Versioning Process

First, create a versioning container. Next, set the versioning container to the container where you want to carry out the versioning process.

Stopping the Versioning Process

Delete the versioning container settings from the container where the versioning process is taking place.

Note: Stopping the versioning process will not delete the versioning container.

Retrieving Objects from Previous Versions

Retrieve objects directly from the versioning container. The objects moved to the versioning container are stored according to the naming conventions described below:

[Object Name Length][Object Name]/[Time Stamp]
  • The object name length contains a zero-padded three-character string in hexadecimal form.
  • The time stamp indicates the creation time of the most recent object.
