ignoreOlderThan Invalid for batch input

Contributor

Does ignoreOlderThanstanza in inputs.conf is Invalid for batch input?
I am getting error as-"Invalid key in stanza"

[batch:\\D:\...\*.zip]
move_policy = sinkhole
index=abc
ignoreOlderThan = 72h

A batch input does destructive reads of the files, so its not expecting older files to be in that location.
Which is why ignoreOlderThan isn`t listed as a valid option for a batch input:
