Backup management via config

It would be great if it were possible to automatically clear out backups after either a certain time (e.g., 1 week or older) and/or after a certain number of backups (only keep the latest 7 backups).  As it stands now, this is only possible via shell scripts calling the CLI, but adding some properties to the Chef Automate config to manage this would be great.

Something like:

[global.v1.backups]
after_time = "weeks"
after_time_count = 1
after_backup_count = 7
