Subject Re: deleting old snapshots
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2018 13:39:54 GMT
yes i have activated the "repository-purge" consumer under Repository 
scanning -> Consumers.  maybe i also need to activate the 
"validate-checksums" consumer as that is the only one not enabled

in my snapshot repository i have the following values:
Cron Expression  0 0,30 * * * ?
Days Older  30
Retention Count  2
Delete Released Snapshots is checked

i was going to upgrade to 2.2.3 but if yours is not working either then 
there is not much point

i wonder if there is any way to trigger it from the command line?
