Improving performance by archiving cases
Enable case archiving to move inactive cases to secondary storage. By periodically purging entries from your database, you can improve application performance and support long-term data retention. Routine case archivals improve search and reporting, increase performance for database queries, shorten database maintenance cycles, reduce primary database costs, and grant better compliance with government compliance policies like General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
