What is a Retention Period?

A Retention Period is the amount of time a Workflow Execution Event History remains in the Cluster's persistence store.

A Retention Period applies to a single Namespace and is set when the Namespace is registered.

If the Retention Period isn't set, it defaults to 2 days. The minimum Retention Period is 1 day. The maximum Retention Period is 30 days. Setting the Retention Period to 0 results in the error A valid retention period is not set on request.
