In the Enforce UI incidents are marked for deletion. On a regular basis another process purges the marked incidents from the database.
Incidents deleted within the UI are purged from the Oracle database on a regular interval.
The interval is controlled by the manager.properties
Both property values are milliseconds.
The delay value is how long after the Enforce starts that the first purge occurs.
The period value specifies how long after the first purge (and all subsquent purges) the next purge will occur.
The above values specify a delay of 6 hours before the first purge,
(6 hours * 60 min/hour * 60sec/min * 1000msec/sec = 21600000 msec)
and a period of 24 hours.
(24 hours * 60 min/hour * 60sec/min * 1000msec/sec = 86400000 msec)
If the Enforce Server is started at 5PM, the initial incident purge will occur 6 hours later, at 11 PM that day. All subsequent purges will occur 24 hours later, or 11 PM every day.
NOTE: Message components (attachments) are deleted when the related incidents are deleted.
