Recycle Bin

The Recycle Bin allows the user to see what items are scheduled for deletion and purging in the system.

When a user deletes an item it becomes hidden from all search results and collection views, and has a flag portal_deleted with a timestamp of when it was requested for deletion. A worker thread will pick up the items for deletion after a configurable time.


You can configure how long after a user has asked for an item to be deleted before it’s purged from the system by settings the DELETION_GRACE_PERIOD in portal.conf. It should be a integer in hours.


The default is 24 hours.
