Information life cycle management (ILM) is a comprehensive approach to managing the flow of an information system’s data and associated metadata from creation and initial storage to the time when it becomes obsolete and is deleted.

This tool helps monitor data in the ILM process.

Scenario: Editor in charge wants to know which pages have’nt been updated for a year. Following someone needs to validate if information is still relevant.

This code example is a simple scheduled job, iterating thru pages and checks for pages not modified from a past date.

The data is sent by email to recipient. Format is table because it is then easy to paste to excel and rearrange.

Editor needs to enable checkbox “update modified date” and republish to make it disappear from report.

Thats it peeps! Keep it simple! enjoy coding.
