About this task

Push retention provides these push notification archive rules:
  • Push Notification - Over a year old: archives push notification records that were created more than 365 days prior to the current date.
  • Push Notification Archive - Over a year old: destroys push notification records that have been archived for more than 365 days prior to the current date.

You can manually archive push notification messages that meet the default archive and destroy rules or any additional archive rules that you create.

  2. Open the push notification archiving rule, for example Push Notification - Over a year old
  3. Click Recalculate Estimate to see how many records in the Push Notification [sys_push_notification] table are going to be archived. The estimate appears in the Record estimate field.
