Run SQL Database Cleanup before migration

Abstract

Clean up blobs on SQL Database and avoid accruing extra costs.

Two considerations for using Azure Blob Storage are: to avoid accruing unnecessary costs and to preclude migrating orphan blobs to Azure Blob Storage. To achieve this, you must run SQL Database Cleanup before beginning migration.

To run SQL Database Cleanup:

  1. Log in to Sitecore as an Admin.

  2. On the Sitecore Launchpad, click Control Panel.

  3. In the Control Panel, open the Administration tab, and click Administration Tools.

  4. On the Database and Operations tab, click Database Cleanup.

  5. In the Tasks section, select the Cleanup blobs check box.

  6. Click Execute Cleanup.
