The Retention Setting for 'Completed Tasks' and 'Task History' is not being honored.

Purging records within Completed Tasks and Task History is not taking place.

This feature is disabled by default in  VigilEnt Security Manager.


Follow the steps below to enable the purging feature within VigilEnt Security Manager (VSM):

  1. Launch the VSM Configuration Utility.  This is typically found under the VigilEnt | VigilEnt Security Manager program group.
  2. Click the Database tab.
  3. Locate the setting: System Purge Interval (hours) and change this from 0 to a setting that most suits your needs.  Based on the number provided, the records listed within Completed Tasks and Task History will be checked every x number of hours.  Only records meeting the Retention Setting within VSM will be purged.
  4. Click OK.

Once the change has been made, you will need to stop and restart the VigilEnt Security Server service.
