protector Plugin

enabled: false

Implementation details

Each Resoto resource has an attributed /metadata.protected which takes a boolean value. By default it is set to false. Each Resoto resource inherits BaseResource which contains two methods for cleaning up a resource, cleanup() and delete(). Both those methods will refuse to manipulate a resource once the protected attribute has been set to true. Meaning if a resource is marked as protected but has also been flagged for cleanup the cleanup will fail because protected resources cannot be deleted.
