From the DLP Incident Manger, click the "Incident Tasks" tab at the top. Select the task type of "Incident Tasks" and click "Actions | New Rule". Create a new rule to purge the incidents you wish.

Go to "Menu | Server Tasks"  and enable the "DLP incident tasks runner" task and set it to run at a specific time; or don't schedule and click run to only run it once.

Hello, incident purge is done the way jhall2 explained but I have another question.

How can you purge incidents and have a clean slate, where the next first incident you receive has incident ID "1", and doesn't continue the numbering from the previously purged incidents?

This would be useful when finished with a pre-production testing phase and want to roll out to production but start from beginning with incident manager and have no references to the testing phase.

 

Thanks

Because incidents leverages SQL auto increment functionality, there is no way to reset the incident number back to 1.
