problem with message deletion

Hi Gurus,

I have a some doubts about messages deletion in XI.

Recently we executed the jobs SAP_BC_XMB_DELETE_001,

SAP_BC_XMB_HIST_DELETE_001 for deleting the messages with a retention period of 180 days( ie 6 months) and the jobs were successfully finished.

Now the problem is we can able to see all the 6 months before messages ( it means from before FEB ) in RWB as well as in sxi_monitor.

one more thing our database team confrim that around 25 GB

data was cleared due to this activity ( That means we have 25 GB of free space in our database)

So please clarify my doubt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi ram,

    only messages are deleted that are marked as deleteable.

    So if you customized your setting for e.g. 3 month ago, all messages that are older than 3 month will nocht be deleted, because they are not marked as deleteable.

    To delete the, you have to update the database-table and set the flag "deleteable"

    Regards Mario
