Ability to remove single entries from Record and Replay

Need the ability to delete entries from record and replay. We use record and replay for capturing errors and replaying if necessary. We would like the ability to delete items and not all failures will be replayed. This would provide us with an easy straight forward way to manage errors.

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this idea has been in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration. Unfortunately on this occasion we have decided not to take this suggestion further forward. In our experience the vast majority of users of the Record and Replay feature, see the task of deleting and archiving data from the Record and Replay database table as a standard part of their DBA's operational tasks, rather than a particular feature requirement for the ACE product. We suspect this is reflected in the solitary vote which this idea has received over the seven years since it was initially opened. For any future readers coming across this post, it should also be noted that this article on archiving data for Business Transaction Monitoring may be helpful (the Record and Replay database table is common to the BTM implementation as well):

    Thanks for raising this requirement. Today the management of the entries in the data capture store is something the user needs to manage themselves, but we'd like to support some autonomic or at least an easier way inside the IIB tools to manage these entries. We'll look at adding this support in a follow-on release.
