ITX 10.0.3 - Amazon S3 Blob Storage Adapter GET Function - Add Option to Delete Blob From Bucket

While using ITX 10.0.3 and running from the Launcher within a container, I am using the Amazon S3 Blob Storage adapter to GET a file and am able to successfully read the object and write it locally. However, the adapter command string and/or input card options do not provide a means to delete the BLOB after a successful read/pull. HCL recently provided me with an updated JAR file (m4s3.jar) so we could use the S3 adapter against our own on-prem S3-based Object Store without needing to provide a REGION, and this updated JAR file is working fine. The Azure Blob Storage Adapter currently provides a READ MODE setting to allow the blob to be deleted after being read. We need to have this same capability with the AWS S3 Adapter. Please advise.

What is your industry? Healthcare
How will this idea be used?

We will use this functionality to integrate out batch processing running in containers with batch file flows.

    Hi Luke,

    We need the ability to remove the BLOB from the S3 bucket after pulling the BLOB to our app server.

    Are you really looking to delete from storage or simply to not persist the data locally?
