Expose the functionality for auto-deleting folders and files on a specific date via the API.
Currently, the web app has a file/folder setting in which a folder or file can be deleted on a specific date. We don't expose this service via the API.
We work with documents in packages (folders) and so when the documents expire and are deleted, we would also like the containing folder to be deleted as well. All of these packages are customer applications and so if not cleaned up then they will accumulate over time.
Right now, retention deals with files only, leaving behind the folders. The auto-delete on the folder is perfect for this purpose except that it is only manually set and not through the API. We work primarily with App Users and so need to be able to work through the API.
I agree, this would be useful to have in the API. Seems like most other folder settings are available in the API with the exception of the items under the "Automated Actions" section.

In the Web App, you can select a date that a folder will automatically delete in the folder settings. It is currently not possible to set this date or change it with the API and this ability would be valuable for us.
