Workato retains data on the Workato platform for variable periods of time, depending on your account plan.
In certain cases, such as in cases of compliance, it might be necessary not to store data, or reduce the duration that data is stored. This time period is configurable for certain Workato plans. Shortening the retention time period is typically done for sensitive data, while lengthening the retention time period is typically done to maintain job logs for troubleshooting on Workato.
