Getting Data In

Is there a default retention period for an index residing in a thawed path and how is it applied?

After I restore the archived data in thawed path and rebuild the index - Splunk recognizes the data.

What is the life-time of the data residing in the thawed path? Is there any default retention period for this?

By default splunk data rotation (hotdb->warmdb->colddb(deleted after 6 years))
Now, I place the buckets inside a thawed path and rebuilt it. How is that default policy is applied here?

If the bucket was frozen due to age, retention would immediately re-freeze it. If it was frozen due to index size, that would also immediately re-freeze it.

As a result, thawed buckets are outside the scope of both retention time and size restrictions for that index, the Splunk admins handle these themselves.
