Are there best practices for archiving test output reports?



  • I am using Katalon Studio for test automation. The reports are written to the disc. But, after a while, after many test suites are executed, the reports folder has grown to more than 40 GB. I would like to free up disc space by deleting reports that are, say, older than one or two months.

    Is there a downside to this approach? If reports are not reviewed after a month, they are probably not that important, right?

    EDIT:

    I know the importance of reports varies between different organizations and clients. As far as my organization is concerned, my hands are pretty much free. However, I wouldn't like to do something rash now that I might regret in the future. That's why I reached out to more experienced testers in order to learn from other people's experiences.



  • I'm not sure how someone who doesn't work in your organization is supposed to know whether it's ok to delete a report after one or two months.

    Ask someone you work with: a peer, or your boss, or maybe the people who use the reports.
