Enable or Disable Purging for Archiving


Topic Last Modified: 2011-02-03

You can use the Archiving Configuration page to define the purging settings for archived content globally or for a specific site.


In order to configure and use archiving, you must first install the Archiving Server and the archiving database. For details, see Deploying Archiving in the Deployment documentation.
To configure archiving support, you must enable support for each type of archiving you want to support and configure, and, if appropriate, assign policies and configure other options to control how archiving is implemented. For details, see Managing External Connectivity in the Operations documentation.
