Does the ignore 'default' section artefacts.expire_in?

Hello all!

I am trying to minimize my repository space usage. Like 99% of the space is used on the artefacts.

I though i got this solved by settings my gitlab ci file

      expire_in: 1 day

But when i click through the jobs i see text next to the download button of

The artifacts will be removed in 3 weeks

On the other hand, i think the documentation states that this should not be the case: says the docs

Keyword type: Job keyword. You can use it only as part of a job or in the default section.

Am i understanding this wrong or is this an issue?

yes. it’s a bug Backend: "artifacts:expire_in" ignored when used in "default" section (#404563) · Issues · / GitLab · GitLab
