We recently applied a retention policy to one of our ProGet feeds, which deletes cached connector packages and removes packages older than 30 days. However, since we applied it this morning, no packages have been removed older than 30 days. We stopped and started the service in Manage Services section with no luck.

Do we need to restart our server hosting ProGet? If so, does this have to be done each time?

Product: ProGet
Version: 5.1.4

Please note that retention policies are a paid feature. Although rules can still be configured in the free edition, they are always executed in dry run mode in ProGet Free.

In addition, when multiple options are specified, then only packages that meet all of the selected criteria are considered.

Please review the retention rules for more information

Otherwise, the best place to look would be the retention logs, to show you what packages were considered.
