3.5 Ignoring Old GroupWise Items

By default, the POA does not transfer items to the GroupWise Connector if they are older than 30 days. Typically, mobile device users have an even smaller time window during which they want items retained on their mobile devices. Allowing the GroupWise Connector to accept items into your Synchronizer system that will ultimately be discarded by the Mobility Connector is not an efficient use of system resources.

You can decrease this setting to decrease connector traffic for old items and align more closely with the needs of mobile device users. If necessary, you can increase this setting to a maximum of 60 days.

  1. In Synchronizer Web Admin, click the GroupWise Connector to display the GroupWise Connector Configuration page.

  2. At the bottom of the basic GroupWise Connector configuration options, click Advanced, then scroll down if necessary.

  3. In the Ignore Events After field, increase or decrease the item age as needed.

    Sweep Cycle option
  4. Click Save Custom Settings.

  5. Click Home on the menu bar to return to the main Synchronizer Web Admin page.

  6. In the Actions column for the GroupWise Connector, click Stop icon (Stop) to stop the GroupWise Connector, then click Start icon (Start) to start the GroupWise Connector and apply the change.

    The GroupWise Connector now receives items from GroupWise POA according to the age limit you set.
