You can configure compliance lock in Commvault using the following procedure.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Storage > Cloud.

    The Cloud page appears.

  2. Click the cloud storage for which you want to configure WORM storage mode.

    The cloud storage page appears.

  3. On the Configuration tab, in the WORM section, move the Compliance lock toggle key to the right.

    The Do you want to enable Compliance lock? dialog box appears.

  4. Select the option to confirm your agreement, and then click YES.


  • Compliance lock will be enabled on all associated copies of the plans. This action is irreversible and you cannot lower the retention.
