DAM retention policy can vary depending on the organization but can anyone help me out with a generic or minimum things to keep in mind regarding retention policy of assets.

Can anyone help me out with the best practices of retention in AEM DAM (i.e. DAM retention policy) 

Eg:

when to delete the assets? (like verisons of assets and old assest etc)

On what basis we can delete like delete if the asset is older than 6 months or delete it if its size is greater than 10mb etc.

When to archive and when to purge?

As mentioned by Gaurav, the purging of assets depends on your use-case and it varies accordingly.

But if you want to delete unused/big size/active/inactive Assets then you can filter them easily.

If you press ‘/’ on /assets.html and press “Enter” key, you’d land at the search result page – from the left top, you can click the “boxy-icon” to open filters, like at [0]

In the image at [0], you’d note that there are filters that you can use to show the required assets and accordingly you can purge them too.

It depends on each organization policy. For example BFSI would never want to delete anything. You can review below for more understanding on AEM maintenance tasks

Revision Cleanup
