    This is essentially an idea to do a bulk editing of scheduling definitions. It seems straightforward enough to modify calendars programmatically with either REST API or composer in conjunction with ones favorite scripting language to remove dates over a certain age. Such scripts could be generalized and open-sourced and shared on public open-source platforms such as GitHub. I think HCL could create the scripts and post them. Runs of such a script could be scheduled - automate the maintenance of the automation product.

    I don't think the DWC needs any additional clutter to add this feature.
