if you want the schema engine to perform any maintenance at all you must select 'Enabled'.

 

In the 'dropdown' list select the number of days old a message has to be before it is eligible for deletion. NOTE: the 'Age' of a message is determined by comparing the 'LastLoaded' date value in the <prefix>_HL7Data table with the current system date.

 

Check the box to indicate whether maintenance should ONLY purge messages which have been marked as 'Processed'. NOTE 1: 'Processed' is determined by checking the value of the 'Processed' column in the <prefix>_HL7Data table. A zero (0) indicates that the message has NOT been processed and any non-zero value indicates that it has. NOTE 2: The checkbox is only applicable for 'Inbound' HL7 messages. Schema database maintenance will never purge 'Outbound' HL7 messages unless the Processed column in the <prefix>_HL7Data table contains a non-zero value.

 

For owners of a 'Professional' license of the schema engine you have the ability to run database maintenance in a separate windows service, all other license holders (DEMO and Developer) must run maintenance in a local processing window from the configuration program itself. See Running Maintenance for more information.
