You can schedule the Version Purge maintenance task from the Ops Dashboard to delete old versions automatically. As a result, this minimizes the need to manually use the Version Purge tools.You can schedule and configure the Version Purge task by accessing Tools > Operations > Maintenance > Weekly Maintenance Window and following these steps:

  1. Click the Add button.

  2. Choose Version Purge from the drop-down menu.

    version_purge_maintenancetask
  3. To configure the Version Purge task, click on the gears icon on the newly created Version Purge maintenance card.

    version_purge_taskconfiguration

Note:

The default values are the recommended configuration values for the Version Purge task. Adjusting these values is necessary in the case of version retention requirements.

Note:

AEM also has a Version Purge tool that can run ad hoc version purges. The configurations for the Version Purge task and the Version Purge tool are unrelated.
