Understanding first day: decide on a purging strategy for the EditorJourney schema
Closed, ResolvedPublicJan 19 2019


We created the EditorJourney schema to log data for this project, and we need to decide what purging strategy to use for this data. By default, all data is purged after 90 days. For more information see Data retention and auto-purging.

Assigning to @nettrom_WMF because this is now unblocked.

After much discussion, we are proposing to not store data for EditorJourney beyond 90 days. There is not currently a compelling use case that requires that we retain data.

Reassigning to @MMiller_WMF for review.

Thanks, @nettrom_WMF, that's correct. I think that now that we know the purging strategy, we need this new task to implement the aggregation strategy, which you'll be developing over time: T214736
