Are you talking about visitor accounts created through the Nerve Center? That setting is found in the Pharos Administrator under SignUp > SignUp Global Settings, then in the center pane expand the section labeled Visitor Accounts. You should see the option to specify the number of days that visitor accounts are active. A change control is necessary if you adjust this setting.
That's the setting that I was thinking about. Thanks!
I don't remember that capability. The problem we always had was that you can't remove a user account without deleting all the transactions\alerts in the Pharos DB. In our environment, we start off with a fresh DB after each upgrade. I save a copy of the old DB after creating monthly and annual reports via Pharos Reports. If I need to go back and capture anything else from the old data I reload the DB on a test server, and create a report. You could save the Pharos reports data in EXCEL format and populate an access DB to accomplish the same thing. We've convinced CU OIT that flushing the Pharos DB is a good security practice for exactly the reason you mentioned.
