Notification log header is a table that usually has huge amount of entries that are no longer needed. Can this info be archived, or even better, purged from the system?



CA Service Desk Manager provides several pre-defined archive/purge rules. However, out-of-the-box, these are inactive and can not be seen in the list with the default filters. These are the steps to enable the rules to make them available for purging the data.


1- Login to CA Service Desk Manager and navigate to Administration tab -> Archive and Purge -> Archive and Purge Rules.

Important Note: Make sure you change the status of the Archive and Purge rules back to Inactive if you do not want to run it daily. Having the rule active may cause unwanted purging of data.
