Data Retention Feature

Data Retention Feature

The Data Retention feature gives the option for developers to automatically remove data from the bucket after a defined period of time. The goal is to help customers to avoid unnecessary costs with data that don’t need to be kept for a long period of time.

You can set the retain data to “Forever”, it means that the data in that bucket will never be deleted automatically, or you can set to days or even months.

TagoIO system uses the field 'Created At' as the basis to make the decision of the retention period.
Depending on how each data has been inserted on the bucket it may be different from that in the time stamp.


For example, setting it to Seven days means that data will remain in the bucket for the time of only seven days (plus some hours based on your time zone).

Data Retention is configurable for each bucket and it is disabled by default (set as Forever).

Data is removed once a day by a task that runs daily after 0h UTC  time zone. Therefore, data in your bucket can still be presented for several hours after the period crosses the 0:00 h in your local time.
