We are preparing back recovery plan for TDM and want to know what is the retention period of self service requests in the tool itself.
I have more! I have been shown in the documentation the other key word to look for - cleanup. Please take a look at this in the documentation:
Configure Access to Requests Results
Note that this if for the Jobs. Although not specifically stated, it does also clean up the disk space where the Jobs were written to.
These three take care of the Test Reservations:
Configure CA TDM Portal for Deleting the Purged Reservations
Configure Dynamic Test Data Reservation Service
Use APIs to Design and Consume Automated Test Data Services
Please change the appropriate expiration times based on the Job types you wish to purge/cleanup. the default is 30 days.
This is an interesting question. My understanding is that we do NOT do any purges and thus all are kept. However, I am confirming this with the Developers and will get back to you.
After posting my response here, I sent it to four Developers for their thoughts regarding my answer. Rather than state specifically that I was wrong, they politely stated that they thought the retention period was 30 days, but needed to check out the mechanism on how that was accomplished.
I have since gone back to the documentation and found the following points:
However, these do NOT speak to the general question that you are asking. I am continuing to explore that in depth with the Developers. However, in the mean time, you do know that the jobs are kept on the hard drive and that we do not clean up those jobs. Have you explored this aspect? Have you decided on an approach to clean out the old results?
I will look up the links you shared and will get back in case of any question.
As per the documentation link you shared, I looked into the application.properties file and dont see an entry for :
Does that mean we dont have setup the cleanup of jobs and it will be all there ?
