Archiving and different Retention period by specific interface

We want to specify different Retention period for different interfaces (audit reasons)... and based on search in SDN, it does not seem like this is supported by SAP...

Do any of you know if SAP intends to support this in future? Any ideas for overcoming this gap? or is this limitation deliberate (and has been kept in place for a reason)?

    Hi Krish,

    Actually I don't think we have this option of setting the retention period for specific interfaces,

    but for the global interfaces in the system.

    If you want to increase the time for Audit Log messages you need to change parameter 'messaging.auditLog.memoryCache' to false in order to persist the audit logs in PI 7.1 system. Take a look at note #1314974 for more details.

    And notice that after changing the parameter to false, audit logs are persisted till the corresponding messages are deleted. The default retention period of messages on AE is 30 days, keep in mind that it could have a little impact on the data volume.

    To increase the retention time in AFW, go to:

    Services -> XPI Adapter: XI:



    For the Integration Engine, it's under SXMB_ADM -> Integration Engine Configuration and Configuration.
