Blackthorn | Payments Log Record Cleanup

Blackthorn Logs older than 30 days are deleted by the Blackthorn | Payments Log Record Cleanup scheduled batch job.

All processed Webhook Events are also retained for 30 days but this can be customized by changing the Blackthorn Pay - Trigger Settings - Retain Webhook Records (for Days) custom setting field. The Blackthorn | Payments Webhook Record Cleanup scheduled job runs these deletes.
