Release Notes: Live Server cleaner - create delete job for remaining files

OpenText Web Site Management Server is a server application that provides an editorial workspace for editors, publishing functions for web pages, and management functions for large websites in the intranets and internet.

OpenText Web Site Management Server Version 11.0 SP1 includes the following new features and changes:

Live Server cleaner: create delete job for remaining files

A new option "Live Server cleaner: create delete job for remaining files" has been added to the general publication settings. Along with this option the default behavior was changed concerning persisting of cleaner jobs in case of certain errors that lead to files not being deleted by the cleaner.

General overview of purpose and how it works: If the live server cleaner fails in trying to delete files from a directory, ftp or sftp publishing target due to certain error conditions (like connection failure or
insufficient permission), cleaner jobs can (in former versions will) be persisted, so that they can be executed later in order to catch up deletion of the files. No cleaner job will be persisted when
publishing to a Delivery Server target, or when files cannot be deleted because they cannot be found (e.g. because someone already deleted, moved or renamed them).

Delete jobs are displayed in "Administer Publication and Scheduled Processes". They do not start automatically but can be started manually (or via RQL, e.g. in user-defined jobs). They are named "cleaner for [job name] ([LV]/PV])”, where "job name" is from the original publishing job and LV/PV are the language and project variant(s).
