I have discovered a strange bug recently. When I visit general settings page, under "Schedule old data deletion" section, Purge DB now doesn't seem to work. The message states that I first must "save changes", although I haven't made any changes at all. I have to click on "Save" button, before it starts working.
Does anyone else can reproduce this?
Cheers @dev-101 I can reproduce the bug. Basically, when the model is loaded, it sets
report-deletion-model.js ::updateSettings() to set the initial settings causing the model to be marked as modified when it shouldn't be.
The workaround as you describe should be to click on "save" and then "purge now".
