Delete minor versions

Jump to solution

All,

We are starting to work on our retention policy and wanted to check to see if anyone knows if nintex can do the following:

  • Delete minor versions of a document 90 days from modified date (the modified date of that particular version)
    • ex. 0.1 modified date 3/1/16 (gets deleted on 6/1/16)
    • 0.2 modified date 3/9/2016 (gets deleted on 6/9/16)
  • Major Versions delete in 7 years from modified date (of that particular version)

Can anyone provide suggestions on how to accomplish this and if it's even possible?

Thank you sooo much!

Hi,

the Versions.asmx web service from SharePoint provides a GetVersions and a DeleteVersions Method. This is the only customization-free way of doing this that I can imagine.

You will find a reference for these two methods here:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/office/websvcversions.versions.getversions.aspx

https://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/office/websvcversions.versions.deleteversion.aspx

And i found this blog post that uses these two methods in a Nintex workflow:

Remove Versions in Wiki pages libraries using web service

Maybe it helps you.

Regards

Philipp
