2403587 - Default Delete Job does not work even the custom archive job has been deactivated


You once scheduled a custom archive job (in addition to "Default Version Archive Job") to archive all expired messages in final state. Now you would like to activate the "Default Delete Job" to directly delete messages in final state from DB when their retention period expires instead of archiving them to archive store. However, you notice that the "Default Delete job" does not work as expected, never delete any message or report any error, even the custom archive job that you created manually has been deactivated. For example,


  • Data Archiving Job => the custom archive job in this example, created manually and has been deactivated
  • Default Delete job => created by PI system automatically, it is active now but no message is deleted and no error is reported
  • Default Version Archive Job  => created by PI system automatically
