Description:
This property specifies the number of backup copies of previous versions of a cube to be kept in Kyvos.

Values and behavior:

Any positive integer.

For example, if a user has performed seven incremental builds on a cube, and he wants to keep backup of only the last five successful incremental builds. Then set the value as 5.

Default value:
2

Scope:

  • Connection: If the property is set at the connection, it will be applicable for all the cubes.

  • Cube: If the property is set on a cube, then the value will override the connection level value of that cube.

Comes into effect:

The value of this property can be changed at any time and will be respected after the first successful build of the cube.
Value of this property can be modified in 2 ways:

1) Decreasing its value from currently saved value.
Example: previously it's value was 5 then it was changed to 2
In this case we will keep backup of last 2 successful builds only instead of 5.

2) Increasing the value from currently saved value.
Example: previously it's value was 2 then user changed it to 5.
In this case we will not be able to back up those cubes which are deleted from system already.
