My question is where do we set the backup retention period for SAP HANA. I am unable to find what is the current value set for the retention period and need to change as we are getting backup log full alerts in the HANA studio. Any help will be appreciated.

You have to housekeep your log / data backups yourself. Log backups are automatic if configuration global.ini -> persistence -> log_mode = normal.

For data backups there's a new way of scheduling them through HANA cockpit.

Other than that, you can check the script provided on sap Note 1651055 to schedule backups and set retention for data backups.

This was already discussed in the past:
