Retention period for Nintex workflow Tasks?


I want to know the retention period of nintex workflow tasks.

I read some where that the workflow tasks will be automatically deleted after 3 months.

Actually we have to track the history of workflow more than 3 months.

can i change this?

Re: Retention period for Nintex workflow Tasks?


workflow tasks will never be deleted automatically. What happens is that workflow history elements older than 60 days will get deleted, when workflows are completed or cancelled.

Hope this brings a bit more light into this.
