TABLES View (Account Usage): Changes to the RETENTION_TIME Column


This behavior change is in the 2023_01 bundle.

For the current status of the bundle, refer to Bundle History.

The RETENTION_TIME column value in the Account Usage TABLES view has changed as follows:


In the following cases, the RETENTION_TIME column might have displayed an incorrect data retention time for tables:

  • If the DATA_RETENTION_TIME_IN_DAYS was not explicitly set for a transient table, the RETENTION_TIME column displayed the value inherited from a parent object. This value might have been incorrect. The maximum data retention time for transient tables is 1 day.

  • If the MIN_DATA_RETENTION_TIME_IN_DAYS parameter was set for an account, the RETENTION_TIME column ignored this minimum retention time and might have displayed an incorrect value for a table.


The RETENTION_TIME column now display the correct data retention time for tables.
