How can i set how many releases i want to keep per environment in Bamboo

In the global expiry settings in Bamboo i have set to keep at least 10 releases per environment(see image 1 below)

Nevertheless, when i navigate to a certain deployment environment, it is detected that it keeps 25 releases(see image 2 below).

Why is that happening and how can i set how many releases i want to keep per environment except through the global expiry settings?

Is the release-272 created more than 7 days ago?

The expiry will look for all releases created more than 7 days ago first to be expired. If there are a lot of releases expired due to 7 days condition causing the number to be less than 10 per environment, it will keep the latest 10 successful releases per environment.

Hello and sorry for my late reply. Yes the release-272 is older than 7 days. I understand what you mean about keeping the latest 10 successful releases per environment. But still as the image shows it keeps showing the last 25 releases instead of only the last 10.

If the 25 releases are not older than 7 days, it will not be deleted.

Example 1:

  1. Release 1 - 11 days
  2. Release 2 - 10 days
  3. Release 3 - 9 days
  4. Release 4 - 8 days
  5. Release 5 - 7 days
  6. Release 6 - 6 days
  7. Release 7 - 5 days
  8. Release 8 - 4 days
  9. Release 9 - 3 days
  10. Release 10 - 2 days
  11. Release 11 - 1 day

Release 1 will be deleted. Release 2-5 are not deleted due to 10 successful deployments to be kept. Release 6-11 not more than 7 days.

Example 2:

  1. Release 1 - 11 days
  2. Release 2 - 10 days
  3. Release 3 - 9 days
  4. Release 4 - 8 days
  5. Release 5 - 7 days
  6. Release 6 - 6 days
  7. Release 7 - 5 days
  8. Release 8 - 4 days
  9. Release 9 - 3 days
  10. Release 10 - 2 days
  11. Release 11 - 1 day
  12. Release 12 - 1 day
  13. Release 13 - 1 day
  14. Release 14 - 1 day
  15. Release 15 - 1 day
  16. Release 16 - 1 day
  17. Release 17 - 1 day

Release 1-5 will be deleted. Release 6-17 (total 12) not deleted cause not more than 7 days yet.

If release-272 is older than 7 days but still not deleted now, it means there is a problem with the deletion process. Need to check the log during the deletion scheduled time.
