Moving S3 lifecycled data from Glacier to Glacier Deep Archive


It's great to see the announcement that Glacier Deep Archive is now available, but how do you move S3 data from the Glacier storage class to the Glacier Deep Archive storage class? If you try to use "change storage class" on objects you just get an error message saying that this isn't possible for something already using the Glacier class.

To answer my own question:

although a manual change in storage class just fails, if you update the lifecycle rule to move to Glacier Deep Archive rather than standard Glacier, then it seems to do the migration for you anyway. My Glacier objects are now showing as being in Deep Archive instead.

Did you do any rule to move first to glacier then to deep archive? I made this one but is not working:
