Setting up retention period for the logs on the Extractor Server

We are generating and storing detailed extraction logs on the Extractor server locally. By default they are stored in the root folder where the file connector-sap.jar is located. A new log file is generated on a daily basis, and with the time the number of logs can grow up significantly. To prevent this, the user can set up a retention period in the file application-local.yml, and the older logs will be cleaned up automatically.

  1. In the file application-local.yml, add the following line in the "logging" section, as shown below. Make sure that the spacing is correct.

  2. Restart the Extractor service
