Configure CA TDM Portal for Deleting the Purged Reservations

In CA TDM Portal, when you perform the model-based test data reservation, you can release the reservation. When you release the reservation, the reservation model keys are deleted. But the deleted reservation request remains in the purged state for a specified period of time. To identify whether the specified period of time is lapsed for the purged reservation requests, a job runs at a specified interval. You can configure the values of these parameters as per your enterprise requirement.
