The script either archives or purges processed access log files and admin log files which are stored in the /opt/pingidentity/webgui/logs/access/ and /opt/pingidentity/webgui/logs/admin/ directories respectively.

Note: When the purge script is run, the log files are permanently deleted. Hence it is recommended to always backup the files before deleting.
Located in the /opt/pingidentity/webgui/util directory, the purge script deletes logs older than the specified number of days. Run the script using the webgui command line.
Note: The number of days specified should be between 1-365 days.
For example.
/opt/pingidentity/webgui/util/ -d 1
This will delete the logs in /opt/e2e/pingidentity/webgui/logs/admin and /opt/e2e/pingidentity/webgui/logs/access that are older than 1 days.

Force delete: You can force delete the webgui log files by using the -f option with the script. When using this option, the script does not check for confirmation to purge the log files. Use the force purge option with the -d option to provide the number of days of logs to keep.

Example: The following snippet shows an example of the force purge and -d option.

/opt/pingidentity/webgui/util/ -d 2 -f
In the above example, the script force purges the webgui log files while keeping log files of 2-days.

External log archival

The purge script can also archive logs older than the specified number of days to secondary storage. Use the -l option and include the path of the secondary storage to archive log files. For example.
/opt/pingidentity/webgui/util/ -d 2 -l /backup/

In the above example, log files older than 2-days are archived to the backup directory. To automate log archival, add the script to a cron job.
