The Object-Lock functionality of the OBS now also supports the ISO timestamp 

The Object Lock functionality prevents objects from being deleted. This is particularly useful to ensure that objects cannot be deleted until a certain point in time. Not even by an administrator. It can therefore protect against unauthorised deletion, such as occurs in ransomware attacks. With the latest update, Object Storage now also supports ISO timestamps for configuring the object lock. This gives you the advantage that you can now have access to a larger set of applications that make use of the Object Lock functionality. This is because there are some applications that only configure the object lock with usage of ISO timestamps. In the past, those were not able to handle the Object Lock of the OBS service correctly. But with this addition you can now also use these applications with the OBS as we added support for the ISO timestamp in addition to the Unix timestamp. Both parameters are now accepted for the transmission of the ‘Retainuntildate’ value.

 The format of the ISO Timestamp is:  


Example value would be:
