Automated Device Cleanup

A common task, although not necessarily a daily task, is retiring unused or deleting retired devices. You can retire devices that have not checked in or delete retired devices by a threshold amount of time. Deleting these devices from the database improves Ivanti EPMM performance and frees up disk space.

After saving the settings, to view the logs for the automated device cleanup, use the Filters section on the left side of the Audit Logs page to narrow the search.


Make sure you are assigned the required administrator role. To delete or retire devices, you must be:

  • Assigned to the global space
  • Assigned the administrator role Delete retired device
