Removal of Old Data for Performance Center 12.01
Question ID: 107348

I would like to find out if there is a relatively simple and/or easy method to remove old test runs and data from ALM Performance Center. Ideally I would like to be able to put in a date and specify that any tests older than that date should be deleted from the repository. I would like to avoid a manual effort of logging into each project and deleting each test individually.

In addition, I have located the "Purge Runs" item in the Test Lab section of projects. This may help in the deletion of old runs, it seems to allow for deletion based on date within a project. It would mean logging into each project, but it is a step forward.

However, I do have a question regarding the purge. In some of our older projects that were migrated from 9.5 to 11, there is no an "Exec Date" value, it is blank. What would happen to these tests, and what date value is used in the Purge Run for selection criteria? Any input would be great.

Unfortunately, there is no way to bulk delete old test runs. You have to manually delete old test runs. HPE does not have a utility at this time.

About the tests which don't have the Execution date (it is in blank), the reason could be that those projects are older or that they have problems; with those projects the removing of old data must be done manually. I mean, delete the runs information manually without using the Purge Runs Wizard. I hope this helps.
