Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to delete old log files from the CA Identity Manager (Symantec IGA) Virtal Appliance (vAPP) using a cron job?

Environment

Release : 14.x

Component : CA IDENTITY SUITE (VIRTUAL APPLIANCE)

Resolution

Check for an existing crontab and amend if necessary
 
/opt/CA/wildfly-idm/standalone/log > crontab -l
 
if none exists create a new one

/opt/CA/wildfly-idm/standalone/log > crontab -e


The following syntax can be used to delete log files over 30 days and is set to execute daily at midnight (00:00:00).
