Set Report Storage Duration

Customizing the storage retention limit is available in on-premises installations of Geocortex Reporting only. Customizing the storage retention limit is not available in cloud Reporting.

The Reporting service retains the files generated from running a report. These files are entered into the data directory, whose default location is C:\ProgramData\Geocortex\Reporting\Jobs_. By default, the report files are kept for 7 days. Once the storage limit has passed, the oldest Jobs_ folder is deleted. The storage limit can be modified to a time limit of your choosing.

To customize the storage retention limit:

  1. As an administrator, edit the following web.config file:

    [installation_location]\Geocortex Reporting\Deployment\web.config

    If you installed Geocortex Reporting in the default location, the web.config file is here:

    C:\Program Files\Latitude Geographics\Geocortex Reporting\Deployment\web.config

  2. In <appSettings>, add this line:

    <add key="app:storageRetentionLimit" value="" />

  3. Set value to a time period of your choosing.

    For example: <add key="app:storageRetentionLimit" value="7.00:00:00.000" />

  4. Save the file.

  5. For the changes to take effect, recycle the Application Pool running the Reporting service.
