Set Data Retention Limits

Sysdig Secure administrators can set data retention limits for image scan results, in order to:

  • avoid storing stale images that confuse users

  • improve the performance of the Sysdig application

  • reduce storage costs.

The limits can be defined by tags or by date.

To adjust the default data retention limits:

  1. Log in to Sysdig Secure as Administrator and choose the Settings menu from the team-switcher button in the Navigation bar.

  2. Select Data Retention.

  3. Set limits and click Save:

    • Latest: Define how many versions back (by tags) the scan results should be preserved.

    • No older than: Set the number of days (30/60/90) that scan results should be retained.

These settings will affect the Scan Results View in the Sysdig Secure UI.
