Is there any history metadata at the artifact level? Specifically data points like "last artifact pull, count of pulls or usage, etc). The ask is coming from a desire to clean up large repo’s of legacy entries ( but in a surgical way ). So this is different then a “maintenance schedule”…since this would be an occasional or one time “deep clean” of repos.
What we’re finding a common pattern with customers doing ‘catch-up’ removals like this is a combination of:
- Conservative policies, gradually becoming more recent over time (e.g. remove everything not used in the last 5 years, then 4.5 years, etc.)
- Temporarily holding a subset of backups for a longer period, in case of post-removal regret
- Instead of deleting components, using Pro features like staging to move components to somewhere less accessible before final removal
- Using cleanup preview to warn teams what will likely get removed soon
Thank you for the suggestions and response!
