Previous Version List (Getting Rather Large)

Previous Version List (Getting Rather Large)

  

I have an application that has been published 5,725 times. When I select the Open other Version... option from the Module menu, it takes quite a while for the dialog to appear. I would be comfortable with rolling off 4,500 or more of these if I could. 

Is there a way to delete previous versions that I'm not aware of?

Solution

Yes there is, in service center you can delete old espaces!


There is also a forge component to do it slightly different:

Hi Daryl,

You can use this application to do that.

Regards,

I'm just going to add my two cents on this:


- I've experienced that, in my case, Service Studio functionality doesn't work because it throws a timeout (Support case is open)

- I've also experienced that DB cleaner is not working for me as well, since everytime I set a "target date" and try to delete, no versions are deleted.


I've ended up building my own "DBCleaner" in 10 minutes or less, using the DBCleaner_API which, from what I could test so far, seems to have minor flaws - the Number of Versions parameter seems to be ignored. (Added to Support Case).


But, in the end, I ended up taking some examples from the DBCleaner already linked - and I still use it - but not for deleting old eSpace versions.

You guys are awesome! And fast! :-) I'm in Service Center all the time and I've never noticed that link! I will be checking out the Forge component as well.

Thanks again!

The Service Center Check Old eSpace Versions to Delete option doesn't appear to do what I'm looking for (unless I'm missing something). I have close to 6k versions of a single eSpace in the versions list. This option seems to only show the latest. I going to take a look at the Forge component and see if that fits my needs...

It shows the older versions, limited to 100. Once you delete those 100, it will show the next older 100.
