Note

This setting is used with the age filtertype, with the period filtertype, or with the space filtertype if use_age is set to True.

 - filtertype: age
   source: creation_date
   direction: older
   unit: days
   unit_count: 3

This setting must be one of seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years. The values seconds and minutes are not allowed with the period filtertype and will result in an error condition if used there.

For the age filtertype, or when use_age is set to True, unit, unit_count, and optionally, epoch, are used by Curator to establish the moment in time point of reference with this formula:

point_of_reference = epoch - ((number of seconds in unit) * unit_count)

units are calculated as follows:

UnitSecondsNote

seconds

1

One second

minutes

60

Calculated as 60 seconds

hours

3600

Calculated as 60 minutes (60*60)

days

86400

Calculated as 24 hours (24*60*60)

weeks

604800

Calculated as 7 days (7*24*60*60)

months

2592000

Calculated as 30 days (30*24*60*60)

years

31536000

Calculated as 365 days (365*24*60*60)

If epoch is unset, the current time is used. It is possible to set a point of reference in the future by using a negative value for unit_count.

This setting must be set by the user or an exception will be raised, and execution will halt.

Tip

See the age filter documentation for more information about time calculation.
