If enabled, the Archive function is meant for MTA customers that require that their Test Run results are persisted over a longer period of time. Every Test Run (regardless of the result) is stored in a hierarchical JSON string in an Archive Event.
Archive Events are stored in MTA for a trailing period of one year.
The information in Archive Events can be used for auditing purposes, for example.
If enabled, the Archive function has a slight negative effect on MTA performance.
