Cleanup at the server level

In the same screen, you will notice all cleanup settings are Keep forever by default. This means that all the data is stored without time limit in your server.

These default values apply to all your applications or new applications you will create in your system.

If you want to apply specific cleanup features to specific applications, read below.

Cleanup at the application level

  • Individual Cleanup settings applied per application will prevail over the server settings.
  • The application setting cannot be longer than the site setting.
  • Enable Cleanup still has to be activated

 

To activate Cleanup per application, follow these steps:

1. Go to Application > Cleanup
2. Select Application from the dropdown.
3. Set Keep history periods according to your specific application/customer needs.



Note: if you use the shared users feature (Usersync plugin), Cleanup will affect all applications with shared users. The shortest data storage setting will apply. The best practice is to use the same Cleanup settings for all applications with UserSync privileges.
