Starting External Purge for a Certified Container installation
You can start an external purge by enabling and configuring external purge options in the Helm chart during installation. For more information, see Configuring Certified Containers.
Schedule external purge, which is run as a job, to execute for a desired duration on a given
date/time. You can schedule and run only one instance of the job at a time. You can use node
affinity configuration to isolate and run the job on a specified node that does not host other
application pods. Note: In a cluster environment, if Document Storage is set to File System, enable the appDocumentsPVC Persistent Volume claim in
values.yamland provision a persistent volume for document storage matching the storage class and labels with the appDocumentsPVC. For more information, see Setting up PersistenceVolumes.
- Disable the default purge service. Click Deployment >
Schedules, search for PurgeService, and then clear the
Enabled checkbox for PurgeService. Note: If you have customized the
Schedule_PurgeServicebusiness process, you need to add the customized code to the new
Schedule_PurgeServicebusiness process. The new
Schedule_PurgeServicebusiness process includes a warning message about running external purge while the scheduled new purge is enabled.
