Cleanup restriction to block possibility of change cleanup settings by users.

Now UCD Users can bypass default cleanup settings which Admin set in System Settings on Component or Environment level. There is no feature to block users from override cleanup settings which in results can cause enormous disc usage on Codestation repository.

    Thank You for your input.

    The Cleanup config feature also allows to overwrite the settings to inherit the syystem settings. But it maybe not enough for your part.


    Adding new role permission features takes time as it has to be thouroughly designed and tested to prevent unwanted sideeffects.

    I will check with Development for more details.

    Greetings Osman!,

    Cleanup configuration feature from UCD 7.3 is not fit for our purpose as it's only allow to view settings on single view but it does not have any option to block user from changing default cleanup settings for their component or environment which in results, in our case, provide to enormous usage of Codestation and constantly adding more disc space, just for giving right perspective our Codestation have now 22 TB for UCD1 PRD and 9 TB for UCD3 PRD and we still need to keep add disc space...

    As for now I can see Status of Idea is "Future consideration". Is there any way to give us any clue in which version of UCD this feature will be enabled and when approximately are plan to release that version to us ?

    So due to above we still very eager to see this functionality as soon as possible...


    Best Regards!

    Pawel

    Adding new restrictions which needs to be controlled by roles&permissions makes the configuration of UrbanCode Deploy much more complex.

    To address this challenge the cleanup configuration feature was introduced with UCD Version 7.3 where you can view and override the cleanup settings. Here is the documentation link: https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/urbancode-deploy/7.3.0?topic=versions-configuring-cleanup-settings

    Technically this is possible. A custom patch was developed for v7032. I guess due to change in groovy version a new patch has to be developed. If this can be added as a feature within Udeploy it can become a standard feature in future versions.
