1. API Description

Domain name for API request:

This API (ModifyAutoSnapshotPolicyAttribute) is used to modify the attributes of a scheduled snapshot policy.

  • You can use this API to modify the attributes of a scheduled snapshot policy, including the execution policy, name, and activation.
  • When modifying the number of days for retention, please ensure that it is not conflict with the permanent retention attribute. Otherwise, the entire operation will fail and a specific error code will be returned.

Default request rate limit: 20/sec.

Note: This API supports finance AZs.
