To ensure that the documents in your IDOL Content component are current, you can run an expiration operation, which deletes or archives documents that reach a specific age. You can expire documents:
at regular intervals, by setting up a scheduled expiration operation
By default, Content deletes documents when they expire. To archive them instead, enter the name of the database to use for archiving as the value of the
ExpireIntoDatabase parameter in each of the IDOL Content component configuration file database sections.
Content can read the date that determines when a document expires from:
a field in the document.
the expiration time that you set for the database that contains the document.
Content does not expire the document if it is unable to determine whether a document must expire (for example, because it does not contain the expiration field, and the database has no expiration time).
