Enable Auto-Deletion of Repository Events

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Overview

Docker Trusted Registry has a global setting for repository event auto-deletion. This allows event records to be removed as part of garbage collection. DTR administrators can enable auto-deletion of repository events in DTR 2.6 based on specified conditions which are covered below.

Steps

  1. In your browser, navigate to https://<dtr-url> and log in with your UCP credentials.

  2. Select System on the left navigation pane which will display the Settings page by default.

  3. Scroll down to Repository Events and turn on Auto-Deletion.

  1. Specify the conditions with which an event auto-deletion will be triggered.

DTR allows you to set your auto-deletion conditions based on the following optional repository event attributes:

Name Description Example
Age Lets you remove events older than your specified number of hours, days, weeks or months 2 months
Max number of events Lets you specify the maximum number of events allowed in the repositories. 6000

If you check and specify both, events in your repositories will be removed during garbage collection if either condition is met. You should see a confirmation message right away.

  1. Click Start GC if you’re ready. Read more about garbage collection if you’re unsure about this operation.

  2. Navigate to System > Job Logs to confirm that onlinegc has happened.
