Auto Delete Task

For the most up-to-date documentation, please visit

The "Auto Delete Task" plugin will automatically delete assets that have reached a certain age. This is useful in a "transfer folder" scenario, where assets are only uploaded in order to be transferred to some 3rd party via PIN-Code or similar, whereafter the assets are no longer needed.


To be configured in {home}/appserver/conf/

type: List of String (comma-separated), required: yes, default: -

Defines a mapping from nodes to their max age (relative to the creation date of the asset) in hours, after which its content should be deleted.

For example 1400:24,1800:168 will delete assets older than 24h in node 1400, and assets older than 7 days in node 1800.


type: boolean, required: no, default: true

If the asset is also linked to other nodes, just unlink it from the current node instead of deleting it.


type: boolean, required: no, default: true

When empty folders are left behind through deletion of the contained assets, remove the (now empty) folder as well.
