Error description

  • If you configure IBM Process Center to automatically delete
    unnamed snapshots that are no longer needed on the server, the

    only; unnamed snapshots from other branches remain on the
    server.

     that unnamed snapshots should be deleted from.

Problem conclusion

    2016.09 that updates the automated cleanup task and ensures that

    the default branch.
