Fixes #27024 - Adding audit cleanup duration and update rake task

Adding setting 'audit_period' to know how long saved audits user wants.
Also updating rake task for cleanup to reflect this setting

#2 Updated by Marek Hulán over 2 years ago

The rake task is there, we should make it automatically executed, similar to how we clean up reports

#4 Updated by Ondřej Ezr 10 months ago

I do not agree we should run the cleanup automatically. Audits should stay forever unless user say otherwise.
Unless we name this Activity log.
