Automating the deletion of selective archived items

in EV 12.x I'm looking for a way to automate the discovery and deletion of specific archived items. To simplify the process I need to achieve the following:

  • Search for archived items by recipient and\or sender
  • Delete all the 'hits' returned by the search

The problem is that this could be a frequent process, consisiting of quite a few search recipients and returning thousands of results. So I'm looking into ways that a search string\list could be read in from a text or csv file, the returned results perhaps moved to a different retention category that will expire them immediately and then to allow storage expiry to delete the items.

Can this be done using EVPM perhaps? 

thanks

This isn't really feasible inside the EV product proper, but it can be accomplished programmatically using the EV Search API and Content Management API. Your profile says you are a Veritas Partner, so take a look at the API guide in your EV SDK and have a chat with your developers.

Thanks Chris

Is there a bolt on product that will be able to do this without the need to develop new APIs for EV?

Would Data Insight be able to help here?

thanks
