How to clear job Invocations History

I can’t seem to figure out how to clear the job invocations history. Someone provided a password in a user input field when submitting a remote scheduled task, and now that password is in the job invocation history.

Expected outcome:
Solution for clearing the foreman job invocation history

Foreman and Proxy versions:

foreman proxy = 1.17.4
foreman katello = 3.6

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:

Distribution and version:

CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908

Other relevant data:

Wow, that seems as pretty old Foreman version. Jobs should be cleaned up with the tasks cleanup. Take a look at

  • foreman-rake foreman_tasks:cleanup:config
  • foreman-rake foreman_tasks:cleanup:run

The default lifetime of a failed REX task (job) is 1 year. Successful tasks are removed after 1 month. You can tweak that in /etc/foreman/plugins/foreman-tasks.yaml

Thank you appreciate the information! Don’t know how I missed that in the docs: Foreman :: Plugin Manuals. It’s pretty clear in section 3.7.

Must have been a Friday. And yes it is pretty old version, long internal story I won’t bore you with it :slight_smile:

Thanks Again!
