Automatic File Cleanup
« on: October 26, 2014, 03:55:19 AM »
This feature could be nice, with some expiry date/time within the signage studio resources?

I have a few clients that use a lot of images that expire within a few weeks, their cloud usage is growing and growing, and keeping track of what images are used in which campaign is a pretty tedious task. An expiry time/date could be nice that would run on some sort of cron based system? either within the studiolite or pro version. I have often thought about developing a small script to conntect to the API and look for folders with time stamps on to delete if the timestamp has passed.. I'm sure the servers could benefit from this, storage wise.

sounds like something that should be automated via our JavaScript API, pepper...
