Purge Connector Datastores

(Applies to IDOL Connectors.)

When a connector runs the synchronize fetch action, it keeps a record of the files that have been extracted from a repository. If you run the synchronize action again, the connector only processes new or updated files. If you want to reset the connector so that it retrieves the same files again, you can purge the datastore file for a specific fetch task from the Service Control tab in the Console page.

To purge a connector datastore

  1. In the Service Control tab in the Console page, click Purge Datastore. The Purge Datastore dialog box opens.
  2. In the Task Name list, click the name of the fetch task for which you want to delete the datastore.
  3. Click Purge. IDOL Admin schedules the datastore for purging.
