As your robotic workforce operates, stale or old data tends to accumulate, which might impact system performance. You can keep your system as clean as possible by maintaining only the data that you require to fulfill your business goals.
When Pega Robot Manager auto-archives data, it exports that data from a main database table to the corresponding archive table at the specified time intervals. This keeps the database size optimal for running fast and efficient queries and ensures that the main operational tables are populated only with the minimum required data.
Auto-purging prevents your archives from accumulating excess data by regularly and permanently deleting the archived records that you consider obsolete or too old to keep.
Auto-archiving and auto-purging are enabled by default when creating an application through the New Application Wizard. To maintain the desired performance of your system, do not disable these options. For more information, see Building a Pega Robot Manager application.
When upgrading from previous Pega Robot Manager versions, auto-archiving and auto-purging are disabled by default.
