Allow Retention Policy to not delete automatically
Besides of having the option to delete or delete permanently, a retention policy should also allow not to delete at all. Many institutions want to assign a retention period to their objects, but do not want to delete the IEs when the retention period is over. Instead they expect to receive a report where they can decide themselves which objects should be deleted.
Not sure we fully understand the purpose of a retention policy that doesn't actually delete the content. But in any case, we believe that this functionality can be achieved today (though in the opposite way) by using the "IEs to be deleted" report which list IEs scheduled for deletion in a given timeframe due to Retention Policy. Users can run this report periodically and decide to modify the policy for IEs that do not require retention.
