Content Cleanup

  • Tombstone Life-cycle of Deleted Items (Cleanup Service)
    • When a user “deletes” a video through the web interface, administrators can configure how long that deleted item will remain in the system before it is permanently removed from the DB and file system
    • The EV Service will run a garbage collection process once a day and process any files that are older than the Tombstone Life-cycle setup by the System administrator
  • Undelete
    • After a user has “deleted” a video (through EV UI) but before the video has been removed by the garbage collection process, the user will be allowed to see all their deleted content that is still “recoverable” on the system
    • The user can undelete the recoverable items which will restore the video back to the library as well as all associated metadata, assets, etc
  • Permanent Delete
    • User is able after “soft” delete to do Permanent Delete and remove all related items for content (Media file(s), Assets and everything from database) through the web interface
  • Report for Deleted Items
  • Logging
    • User is able to see logs under Logs tab that include which contents are “soft” deleted (recoverable) contents, “hard” deleted (unrecoverable) contents and contents deleted by cleanup service after tombstone life-cycle
