can I configure HipChat to delete old posts automatically?

I've heard conflicting reports.  Can I configure my HipChat to only keep the last 180 days (6 months) AND delete anything older?  Thanks in advance!

Hi Jace,

The configuration for history retention allows a few options:

By choosing Store messages by age, you will get a text box to set the number of days you prefer. This can be set to any number between 7 and 365. So yes, you are able to set it to delete anything older than 180 days.
