Retention on remote back-up

I'm having a small issue/suggestion for OneView (or I might be overlooking something):

As far as I can see there's no option to set a retention on the amount of back-ups to keep within OneView (e.g. 'Keep the last 5 back-ups' or 'Delete all back-up older than 1 month'). As we've got about 22 OneView instance's running back-ups it would help being able to set retention on OneView back-ups.
Am I overlooking a simple setting? Currently running OV 6.1 and check release notes of 6.2 and 6.3, but I'm unable to find the option.

If it's not available, where do I log my product improvement suggestion :)?

Regards,
Martien

Re: Retention on remote back-up

To retain more than one backup, you must configure an external backup location. OneView does not support retaining more than one backup file per request.  This is documented in the User Guide here.  We have no plans to change this behavior and retain more backup files on the appliance, as that would really expose safeguarding the backup file if the appliance is accidently deleted.  Let alone the required disk space.
