Magnolia 5.7 reached extended end of life on May 31, 2022. Support for this branch is limited, see End-of-life policy. Please note that to cover the extra maintenance effort, this EEoL period is a paid extension in the life of the branch. Customers who opt for the extended maintenance will need a new license key to run future versions of Magnolia 5.7. If you have any questions or to subscribe to the extended maintenance, please get in touch with your local contact at Magnolia.

The Repository Tools app allows you to manipulate repository content. You can run garbage collection on any workspace and purge versions of deleted content. The Jackrabbit datastore expects you to run GC manually so we have provided a way to do that via the app. The purge versions is used to delete versions which are kept even on content deletion. This provides a way to remove those via the app.


The Repository Tools app is based on the small app concept and installed by the Tools module. Access to the app is restricted to the superuser role in the app configuration and app launcher layout configuration. The app is configured at Configuration > /modules/tools/apps/backup.
