How the Archive Business Process Service Works
The Archive function in Sterling B2B Integrator is designed to be configured once, then run on a schedule. This service is configured as part of the Archive setup process.
When configuring this service, you specify what business process data should be archived, based on the number of days. You also choose how often to run the archive operation, based on your business needs or requirements. Once you have configured the Archive Business Process service, run the Archive business process to begin archiving data according to the parameters you have specified.
