Issue/Introduction

We have created user_device perspectives via callbacks. We need to know if they will be removed automatically if no data is received for them from any probes?

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UNIFIED INFRASTRUCTURE MGMT

Resolution

The user_perspective should not be removed once created. however if no data for a year and a day, all QOS for these devices will be deleted. This functionality is controlled by data_engine. Example, if you delete a robot because it is retired, the data is not removed for said robot until after a year. This is base functionality of data_engine
