TaskExecutionHistory logs for more than 30 days

Hi,

Is there any way to configure the Publisher to keep the TaskExecutionHistory logs more than 30 days? I can keep my own qvd library of older files, but I would prefer not to.

Hi,

I have tried the solution linked by Massimo, but it does not take effect. I have restared the distribution service.

Are you sure the actual config file has been correctly updated?

More than once, I faced the problem that my editor couldn't overwrite a config file in the C:\Program Files area. Saving to your own Documents folder implies copying the saved file to the correct location later on (which I seem to have forgotten on at least one occasion)

Also check the extension of the new config file.

It should work.

@peter cammaert, No this entry:

    <add key="NbrOfDaysToKeepQDSLogs" value="400" />

is in the

QVDistributionService.exe.config

file located in the:

C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service

directory, unfortunately.

Wow, that's a lot of history your are aiming for. Can you try with a smaller value, for example 45 or 60 days?

I can try to set it to 60 days to see if that works, pretty weird if that would be the problem though.

HI,

In the C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service\QVDistributionService.exe.config

<!-- The number of days to keep QDS logs -->

    <add key="NbrOfDaysToKeepQDSLogs" value="30"/>
