Posting this question here for clarification on The Cleanup policy and its effects.
It is to my understanding according to official docs:  that when applying a cleanup policy to a repository, the item should still be displayed in the frontend, however, marked as “deleted=true”.
We applied this policy to our NuGet-repository as an example with the preview result showing just one item for removal. The item seemed to have completely disappeared from the frontend UI when browsing through the repositories (however, when searching for the specific package name, the item showed up as a result.). After some regex magic through the millions of files in the backend, managed to obtain the related .properties for the item to restore it.
My question/clarification: is this by design? Is there any easier route we can follow to obtain/list the affected items marked by the cleanup policy instead of every time having to log in to the backend and join a search party to obtain the related .properties files for items marked deleted=true?
Thanks in advance
