Users are in full control over how much data is retained for a process in SolveXia including the number of historical runs and versions of files.
You can manage the rules around how much data is retained using the process storage feature. Including the ability to set an auto-clean policy to have the system periodically remove data that you no longer need.
The process storage in SolveXia is split into actual and historical storage. Actual storage is calculated by adding up all files used in the main process and all runs. Historical storage is calculated using the file size of historical files in process and runs.
Historical files are snapshots of the file every time is modified, these snapshots can be very useful when debugging a process as they will show the file before and after the step. You can see all the historical version of a file by opening the file history.
To access the process storage, in the process, click on Properties and go to the Process storage section:
Auto clean policy
The auto-clean policy is a great way to actively manage the amount of data being stored in SolveXia and to pre-emptively ensure that you stay within your license limits (for data storage).
There are four auto-clean policies to choose from:
- Everything: use this to retain all runs and historical files
- Number of runs: use this define how many runs need to be kept
- Number of months: use this define how many months' worth of runs need to be kept
- Number of files: use this to define how many historical versions need to be kept (all runs will be retained)
