Hello everyone!

I am having trouble with expirer object, I read this article (

And I put object-expirer.conf in every object server, but when I use X-Delete-After header, object is not deleted after the time I set.

Admittedly, I have never looked into this, but have you checked the swift log for object-expirer messages?

The documentation also talks about a "hidden .expiring_objects account". Perhaps you can find this account and look around?

Of course, the configuration file may be incorrect as well.
