Old Backup Cleanup

Customer Managed Applies to customer-managed instances of Alation


This information applies to both Backup V1 and Backup V2.

Old backup files are cleared automatically based on the configuration of the backup cleanup process. Both the Alation backup and the corresponding Event Bus backup will be cleared.


The count of backup files that is maintained by the system can be obtained from the value of the alation_conf parameter alation.backup.data_dump_versions.
