Deleting completed jobs automatically?

Is there a setting somewhere that will instruct Freeflow Core to delete jobs from the completed jobs queue after a set amount of time? I thought that jobs were deleting after 24 hours automatically but it appears that this wasn't the case or it stopped happening sometime last week. It may have happened after the last update. Now I have to go in and manually delete jobs so that I do not have space issues.

The config switch you are looking for is at: /Program Files/Xerox Freeflow Core/mantisService.exe

 

The line is   <add key="oapJobRetention" value="86400" />

 

The 86400 value works out to 24 hours.

We have checked and this is already in place.

Any other suggestions?

I have a screen shot of it but cannot seem to either attach it or paste it into this note

Another item in the mantisService config file that could be the source of the issue is:

 

 <add key="ExpiredJobSweepInterval" value="3600000" />  -- the value is in milliseconds

 

ExpiredJobSweepInterval is the time period that the job list is reviewed. When a job marked for removal (oapJobRetention) is seen, it is removed. So if oapJobRetention is set to 24 hours and ExpiredJobSweepInterval is set to 1 hour, a job may be retained for 25 hours.

 

Also when mantisService is updated a reboot is needed to make the change take effect.

I have been informed by your analyst team that this is actually a bug and will be addressed in the next release.
