The retention settings control how long the audit data is stored in the Long-Term Archive (Audit Archive in Netwrix Auditor 6.5 and below).
By default, the retention period equals 120 months (10 years) and affects all monitoring plans.
To review and update the Long-Term Archive retention settings:
- Netwrix Auditor 7.1 – 8.5—In Netwrix Auditor Administrator Console, navigate to AuditArchive –> Long-Term Archive.
- Netwrix Auditor 7.0—In Netwrix Auditor Administrator Console, navigate to Settings –> Long-Term Archive.
- Netwrix Auditor 6.5 and below—In Netwrix Auditor, navigate to Settings –> Audit Archive.
If you lower retention period, on the next scheduled data collection all outdated data will be removed from the Long-Term Archive.
See Netwrix Auditor Administration Guide for more information.
