Managing Process Recordings in LiveCycle

Process Recordings are stored in the /GDS/audit/workflow/ directory.

By default, the maximum number of recordings that can be stored is set to 50.

The value for maximum number of recordings can be configured via Workbench:

1. Open Component View in Workbench.
2. Right click on “Components/AuditWorkflowDSC/AuditWorkflowService:1.0”
3. Select “Edit Service Configuration…”
4. Change the value to increase/decrease max limit.
5. Restart service.

It is not recommended to turn on Process Recordings in a Production Environment.

    Adding more to this, I faced an issue when the Process recording was default configured to 50 and I was not able to delete the existing recording and was getting a Null Pointer exception I invoke a process. To resolve this, I changed the recording count to 10 and it worked. I was able to invoke the process from Workbench after this change.

      Hi Tanmay,
      If you encounter such issues again, instead of changing the count, try the following :
      – Backup GDS/audit/workflow dir.
      – Delete the contents of the GDS/audit/workflow dir.

      This may help if there was any file corruption within the workflow dir where the recordings are stored, which could have caused the NPE.

      It is a good practice to frequently clean old recordings.
