Can I give partition filter conditions for the VACUUM command similar to OPTIMIZE

For the optimize command, I can give predicates and it's easy to optimize the partitions where the data is added. Similarly, can I specify the "WHERE" clause on the partition for a VACUUM command

It's by design, VACUUM command does not support filters on the partition columns. This is because removing the old files partially can leave can impact the time travel feature.
