Remove package components after updating component



my greengrass custom component is a docker container hosted on S3.

After I update a version of one of my custom components, I noticed that the previous component is lingering here,


is this expected behaviour?

Since this is a large docker container (~few gigs) after a few updates I will run out of space on my device.

I'm using greengrass 2.4.0.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Hi everyone, I solved my own problem:

I added this line to my component manifest:

"Install": {
"RequiresPrivilege": true,
"script": "docker load -i {artifacts:path}/my_package.tar; rm {artifacts:path}/my_package.tar"
