How can I find/set/modify log retention time for the autotrack command?

Environment

CA Workload Automation AE r11.3+

Resolution

There is no way to adjust the retention period for autotrack. While autotrack is enabled, it will retain history indefinitely. That is until you permanently shutdown the environment and destroy the data. Disabling autotrack will not clear out past logged events. When you re-enable autotrack, it will continue to log from that point forward, meaning if you had autotrack disabled for 2 weeks, you will see a 2 week gap in tracking.
