This topic describes adding a custom retention definition for individual snapshots. This value will override that of the policy currently assigned to the container, for example if 'forever' is selected then the snapshot will no longer be deleted via the retention policy.


  1. Log into the Delphix Admin application as a user with Delphix Admin privileges.
  2. Select Resources > Capacity.
  3. Expand the object (dsource or vdb) to modify.
  4. Expand the snapshots. (it may take a few minutes for the individual snapshots to appear)
  5. Configure the desired value in the 'keep until' column, either the number of days or tick forever.
