Hi @hpvd

  • Do you still see old data in Visitor > Visitor log (ie. log data) older than 1 day?
  • Do you still see Report data older than 3 months?

Hi @mattab
indeed "visitor/visitor log" itself seem to be cleaned now!

Maybe I didn't get it / didn't read careful enough:
Is this the only-thing which should be deleted?

Other data is still there, e.g.

Dashboard:

  • Visitor over time
  • Movers shakers
  • Entry pages

Visitors/Overview
Visitors/Devices
Visitors/Software
...

Is this the way how it should work?
imho would have expected that at least the headline "Schedule old data deletion" and "purge now" - Button would delete everything

Other data is still there, e.g.

is it also there for data older than 3 months? If you delete old archived data older than 3 months, then it's expected that "Entry pages / Visitors Devices etc." are deleted.

hmmm ok, there is only data left newer than 3 month.
=> so everything seems to be right?

Is there another way to clean Piwik-Data completly e.g. all before today?
e.g, for when a testing site is going life?

If not: Having learned this, one only would need to add to these cleaning periods a new item:
"older than today"...

what do you think?

Sounds like it's working as expected.

Is there another way to clean Piwik-Data completly e.g. all before today?

It is possible to do this manually see FAQ: https://piwik.org/faq/how-to/faq_73/

Hope this helps!
