About this task

The assessment process generates a considerable amount of data, some of which is not useful after a short time. Assessments include a scheduled job called Remove Old Assessment Data that is available to administrators only. The scheduled job removes these items if they are more than a year old:
  • Assessment instance questions
  • Assessment instances
  • Metric results

By default, the scheduled job is executed manually. Administrators can configure the scheduled job to run automatically on a recurring schedule.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System Scheduler > Scheduled Jobs > Scheduled Jobs.
  2. Open the Remove Old Assessment Data record.
  3. On the Schedule Item form, set the Trigger type field to run the scheduled job on a recurring schedule.

    It is recommended to set the scheduled job to run on a weekly or monthly basis.

  4. (Optional) Click Execute Now to run the scheduled job.
