Purge ended alerts

System administrators, enterprise administrators, and organization administrators can enable alert purging by selecting purge criteria for an organization. The purge criteria is the number of days after an alert or event has ended.
Purged alerts and events cannot be recovered.
The purge deletes all ended alerts, events, and their related attachments from the system. Purging ended alerts and events is disabled by default and can be enabled per organization. Suborganizations do not inherit purge criteria from the enterprise organization.
Any changes made to the purge criteria take effect at the next scheduled purge.
Only ended alerts and events are purged. Drafts alerts and events, templates, manual logs, the operator audit trail, and scheduled and recurring alerts are not purged.
For events, purge criteria are applied after the last alert for the event is published. For example, if an event is for 30 days with one recurring alert per day, and the purge criteria is set to 120 days, then all 30 alerts are purged on the 121st day after the last alert for the event is ended.
