    As of Oct 2020, Optim OM considers this a low priority requirement. Optim Distributed now allows the clearing out of the audit log on a regular basis. However, the information is likely to be required for software audits. We think that deleting these records should be a conscious customer decision.

    However we will revisit this requirement when planning future releases.

    Hi Fritz,

    This is maybe a good idea for TDM and Data Privacy. However, for Archive, Optim is priced by TBs archived. OM thinks we should leave Archive audit recording on so customers can review the volume of data they have archived. Do you have comments or concerns about this?
