Use Case and Business Need:
As stated in the doc we have the same business need: "Replication provides protection from regional outages, aids in disaster recovery efforts, and addresses data redundancy compliance requirements. Maintaining multiple copies of data in regional locations closer to user access can also reduce latency." (https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/en-us/iaas/Content/Object/Tasks/usingreplication.htm)
Our Use Case: We started using Object Storage Buckets before this replication feature was released. Adding an option/button/flag/api to trigger a full replication for all objects in the source bucket would allow us to take advantage of this feature with full confidence all objects from before the policy was created will be replicated.
