10.1.2 Purge and Archive btcache Documents

Purge and archive the BTCache calendar documents that are no longer needed. Automatic purging and archiving of cache documents is based on the $BTPurgeDate field, which is automatically set to the last occurrence of a repeating meeting.

To allow database purging or archiving of the BTCache database, purge dates (BTPurgeDate) are added to the cache meeting documents originating from both Notes and Outlook. The BTPurgeDate is set to the end date/time of the last occurrence in an invitation. For rescheduled repeating meetings, the last occurrence date/time is compared with the BTPurgeDate in the cache and the BTPurgeDate is updated if the new date/time is greater. For a rescheduled single occurrence meeting, BTPurgeDate is updated to the end date/time of the reschedule.

There are two methods for setting the BTPurgeDate:

  1. A scheduled agent runs daily at 1AM to automatically set the value

  2. A manual agent can be run from the Actions menu

Purge Settings

Click on Settings at the top of the navigator.

Configure the following settings to purge documents:

  1. Click Enable on the Status line to enable the agent.

  2. Enter the Number of Days after the $BTPurgeDate to delete the document(s).

  3. On the Purge Options, select Delete to have the documents deleted from the cache database, or Archive to have the documents archived to another Notes database. If you will select Archive, you must also populate the following fields:

    • Archive DB Path – The Cache Archive database path where the documents will be copied. Click the Select DB button to choose a DB.

    • Archive Server – The Domino Server where Cache Archive will reside.

      Take note that the archive database must use the btcache template.
