Many people struggle with the configuration and execution of the SOA Purge functionality under Oracle SOA Suite 12c.
Oracle provided with SOA Suite 12c a nice web interface for enabling, and scheduling the AutoPurge functionality within the Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control 12c.
But in case you just enable, schedule and define your retention time for the AutoPurge within this web interface nothing will be happen :-( You have to modify in addition some MBeans in order to enable and execute your AutoPurge Schedules correctly.
Simply login to your Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control 12c (usually http://servername:/em), open the Target Navigation, navigate to "SOA/soa-infra" (in case you got a clustered environment, simply pick one of the available soa-infra, changes will be valid for all cluster members):
Under your soa-infra open the menu "SOA Infrastructure / SOA Administration / Auto Purge". Read the complete article here.
