DBPurgeTool can be automated

When running the DB Purge tool to delete subscriptions or audit data, it will be prompted for a username and password.

=> It isn't possible to launch it automatically (through a schedule task for example).

Is it possible to change this tool so that it can be automated ?

You can add properties to your config.properties file to allow this to happen.  They are csaAdminUser and csaAdminPassword.  This isn't very well documented, but it will allow you to run it without being prompted for the credentials.  Just be sure to encrypt the password before storing it in the file.
