This document explains the new objects and rules added to the Archive/Purge utility in Service Desk R12.


In Service Desk R12, the Archive and Purge was modified to include additional Knowledge Tools objects and KPI (Key Performance Indicator) data.

New Objects for Knowledge Tools are

    • KD Image Attachment

    • KD Link only attachment

    • KD file attachment

    • Reworked Knowledge documents.

KPI's (Key Performance Indicators) are a set of metrics that can be used to identify areas of Service Desk that require administrative attention or configuration tuning. The KPI's when enabled fetch the data into two tables depending on the type of KPI used. The two KPI tables are usp_kpi_data table and usp_kpi_ticket_data. These KPI's when enabled will fetch high amount of data and these tables might grow significantly large. Hence, archive/purge provides rules to purge the KPI data. However, these rules are disabled by default and need to be enabled. KPI objects added to Archive/Purge are: KPI Data (usp_kpi_data) KPI_Ticket_Data (usp_kpi_ticket_data)

To view and enable KD and KPI rules.

  • Login to Service Desk as Administrator-> Go to Administration-> Archive and Purge-> Archive Purge Rules

  • Click on Show Filter, on the Status Field select Inactive and click on Search. It will bring up the rules for Knowledge Tools and KPI Fig 1
