How to erase old builds

Ana MB
Hi guys, 

I'm trying to erase old builds from my Jenkins, but I've found that in some tests, Jenkins doesn't delete old builds as I need.
I'm doing it from here:

And as I show you here:


Everything seems to be OK, but in my Jenkins directory there are the rest of the builds (they haven't been erased here):


Why is this happening??
Does anybody know?

I need to delete those builds to save disk usage.

Thanks so much!!!

Some things to keep in mind here:
  • Log rotation is only done upon a new build
  • Specific builds could be marked as keep forever (and thus are excluded from rotation)
Having said that, you could also try to trigger log rotation for that job via Groovy Script console, for example with the following script (modified version of this script to allow rotation of specific jobs only):

import jenkins.model.*

def jenkins = Jenkins.getInstance()
def jobsToRotate = [
  'Name of Job',
  'Name of another Job'
]

jobsToRotate.each { jobToRotate ->
  def job = jenkins.getItemByFullName(jobToRotate)
  job.logRotator.perform(job)
}

HTH...
