HOW TO: Change the configuration for the delete option of temporary reports in PIM
Solution

To configure the delete option of temporary reports in the Product Information Management (PIM) Server, do as follows:

  1. Open plugincustomization.ini located under [PIM_INSTALLATION_ROOT\server\configuration\HPM]
  2. Go 
    to the section Report Cleanup Server Settings  
    #defines when to run cleanup job (cron job expression syntax)
    # See Quartz Enterprise Job Scheduler documentation for more details about the syntax 
    #
    # examples:
    #   hourly:                  "0 0 0-23/1 ? * *"
    #   daily at 24.00:          "0 0 0 ? * 1,2,3,4,5,6,7"
    #   every Sunday at 01.00:   "0 0 1 ? * 7"
    #
    #Default:
    #repeatPattern=0 0 0-23/6 ? * *
  3. Activate the following setting:

com.heiler.ppm.report.cleanup.server/reporting.cleanup.repeatPattern=0 0 0-23/6 ? * *

In this instance, all the temporary reports are deleted every six hours (default value without configuration) with server start.


Resulting Cron Expression:   0 0 0-23/6 ? * *
   
Seconds Minutes Hours Day of Month Month Day of week Year
0 0 0-23/6 ? * *
 
Note

It is NOT recommended to set the interval below the default six-hour frame.
