Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.
LabelPropTypeDescription

Data Retention Periodretentionstring

The data retention period to observe for the validation job, expressed in the format dd.hh:mm:ss (where dd: days, hh: hours, mm: minutes, ss: seconds); the initial dd. part is added only for periods of more than 24 hours. The value has a minimum of 5 minutes (0:5:0) and a maximum of 30 days (30.0:0:0): Verifalia will delete the job and its data once its data retention period is over, starting to count when it gets completed.
