/api/space/fabric-management/run-purging-operations

The following operation is supported on this resource:

  • POST - Schedule Purging Job
POST /run-purging-operations Version 1

Trigger a "Purging Task" in Junos Space to clean up server disk space. The job deletes old database backups, configuration files, reports and other files. Old files, which are no longer needed are deleted from all Junos Space cluster nodes. The job will retain the number of files configured by a threshold value. If the number of files found on each server is at or below the threshold value, no files will be deleted.
