Create an Audit Log Maintenance application

The Audit Log Maintenance application automatically deletes Audit log records that are older than a specified number of days or months (6 months by default). You can schedule how often to run this application and configure it to optionally export these records prior to deletion.

Make sure that the AuditLogMaintApp rules package is enabled in the Transaction Manager before you enable an Audit Log Maintenance application. For more information, see Enable a rules package.
