Auto Data Purge Available in All Types of Instances

Auto Data Purge is introduced to all types of instances in addition to preview instances. Documents and audit data are purged periodically when they’re configured to be purged and exceed the retention period defined.

The Auto Data Purge process has been used to purge data periodically in preview instances as of the 1H 2020 release. In the 1H 2021 release, we've extended the Auto Data Purge process to production, test, development, and sales demo instances. You can choose which type of data you want to purge and set the retention period. We offer the following updates of Auto Data Purge in this release:
  • Default settings of the Auto Data Purge tab are different depending on instance types.

  • We renamed all the data types to better categorize the target data of Auto Data Purge. The scope of target data and the impact of purging them remain unchanged.
    • Attachments is renamed to Documents.

    • Person Related Audit Data is renamed to Audit Data Containing Personal Identifiable Information.

    • Non-Person Related Audit Data is renamed to Audit Data Without Personal Identifiable Information.

Auto Data Purge is introduced to all types of instances to further optimize cloud storage and improve data storage efficiency.
