Expiration

Data takes a lot of storage and not all type of events are neccesary to keep forever. In order to keep the size of the project under control, it is possible to setup automatic expiration of events after a certain period of time.

To get into the Expiration section, click on the three-dot button on the top right corner of Management section and click on ‘Expiration’.

In here it is possible to specify which event type should be deleted after specified amount of time. The events will be deleted permanently.

Definition Export & Import

This part enables of easy copy of different components in Exponea (campaigns, analyses, definitions..) between projects and/or exporting them as JSON. 

First you need to select which components do you want to export or clone to another project and then select one of the blue action buttons in the top right corner. If you wish to import definitions instead, they are imported in the form of JSON (same as that was exported previously)
