How To Cleanup Experience Manager Authoring Generation Data Files in Oracle Commerce 11.2 (Doc ID 2077752.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Commerce Guided Search / Oracle Commerce Experience Manager - Version 11.2 to 11.2 [Release 11.x]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The content save mechanism within Oracle Commerce 11.2 utilizes a generational File Store Factory for the Authoring Assembler.
This means, each time a customer saves, a small content generation .zip file is saved in the generation_data folder.
Over time, especially with very frequent or very large changes in Experience Manager, these files should be cleaned.
There is a mechanism built into the product that merges the generational content into a single file.
This mechanism should be run periodically, with intervals between runs dependent upon business needs.
