Can arrest log be deleted

Free up database space by clearing audit logs

If you enable auditing, customer interaction apps (Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Customer Service, Dynamics 365 Field Service, Dynamics 365 Marketing, and Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation) save the change history for transactions in the form of audit logs in the database. You can delete old or unnecessary logs to clean up the database memory.


If you delete an audit log, you will no longer be able to view the audit history for the period covered in the audit log.

  1. Make sure you have the System Administrator or System Customizer security role or appropriate permissions.

    Check your security role

    • Follow the steps in Viewing the User Profile.

    • Do you not have the required permissions? Please contact the Systemadministrator.

  2. Select an environment in the Power Platform admin center.

  3. Choose Settings > Monitoring and logs > Audit log management out.

  4. Select the oldest audit log. Then select on the command bar Delete logs out.

  5. In the confirmation message, select OK out.


    You can only delete the oldest audit log in the system. If you want to delete multiple audit logs, you must repeat the process of clearing the oldest audit log until enough logs have been deleted.
