make_unused_managed_files_temporary didn't work for me.
I am using Drupal backend for the REST API frontend application.
Thats how the File input looks (because I am not sure if that setting is for that File elements, but guess so).
I read some informations about permanent files deleting, because I would like to delete files permanent from the file system and also database.
I was set the
true and debuging, this is really true in the code.
I also found the configuration in
Backend / File system - Delete temporary files after (6 hours), so this is on.
I am checking also the database
file_managed before and after (and after 6 hours) file deletion for the flags like
status that indicates
isTemporary() method. But after uploading file, saving... then editing, and removing file, the file is still in the database as a status 1.
I am also checking DB table
file_usage where there is still the item with
count=1 too, that should be not true (because of deletion).
And files maybe should move to /tmp folder, but that doesnt. I am working on Drupal 8.5.6 and 8.7.2 on production, but the behaviour is the same. I am doing something wrong? Is there some cron to be configured? Or another futher settings?
Edit 1: I think it is not a Media, but simply file widget -
Edit 2: The main problem is that, when I delete file, it stay in the database as a permanent flag (
status=1), and also it has a count of usage 1 (
file_usage=1). When I manually update database to set
count=0, the cron works OK. Why the file usage and count stay on?
