Applying an Archive Policy

Logi Report Server uses an archive policy to control resource versions. The archive policy can be applied to a single resource individually or to many resources in a folder as a whole. It can also be applied when you publish resources to the server resource tree or when you advanced run or schedule a report.

When applying an archive policy, you can choose whether to use multiple versions for a resource or always use the new version to replace the old one.

Archive as New Version

Specifies to use multiple versions for the specified resource.

  • Maximum Number of Versions
    Specifies the maximum number of versions that will be listed in the version table of the resource. The default value is 0, which means that the version number is unlimited.

Replace Old Version

Specifies to replace the old version when a new version is generated.

If there is no archive policy specified for a resource, the resource will inherit the archive policy from its parent. If afterwards you then specify an archive policy for the resource, the new policy will override the one inherited from the parent.
