Clean up of files created by REST API data extraction

REST API provided to extract data from Zuora objects seem to create files locally and there is no existing process to clean these up. This grows over time and clogs the storage space on Zuora servers.


Recently this was brought to our attention and I suggested the following options.


1) Provide the API user permission to delete the extracted files post processing

2) Have Zuora implement an automated purge process that will clean up files older than 7 days


Unfortunately, none of the above are supported in the product feature stack today and I would like Zuora to add this enhancement.

Hi @kvramachandran, great idea and something we're working on right now. We'll likely continue to use the 7 day limit, and clean up all data source export files older than that going forward. Hopefully, that makes sense and will not cause any problems for folks.

We've automated the deletion of all Export files older than 7 days (the process currently is a bit less strict than that, but 7 days is what we're going to tighten it up to over time).
