Purge old file versions

Post by korazy » Thu Aug 20, 2009 10:21 am

Is there a way to purge old file versions? We have been using Vault for several years and we a lot of version history that isn't needed any more. Ideally, I would like a way to purge file versions that are more than 2 years old and the version number is 3 less than current (N-3). If those two items are true, then purge that file version.

This isn't available at the present time. We do have feature request 10226 logged for this functionality; I'll add your vote.

You can add mine as well. I would rather delete code > x years old and keep the database lean if possible. Can't find any way of doing it without spending the time to dive into the DB structure.
thanks

Please add my vote for this option too. We now do nightly compiles of our code and the binaries are stored in Vault, soo it's likely that the database is going to grow at some rate.

Thanks. Although this is logged in as a feature request, it's probably not something we're going to be able to implement soon.

Please add my vote for this too. As the Vault DB gets to be multiple Gigabytes, it starts to slow down.
Thanks.

It's been a decade.
Literally, a decade.

Any plans on this?

Thank you for inquiry. You are correct, this feature has not yet been implemented. Unfortunately, it was not a feature request in high demand. I will update the feature requset to include your latest interest.

Thanks,

Tonya

Would also dearly love this function. Our database is just growing and really needs to be trimmed to a working size. Please add a few votes from me.
