How far back is data retained in System Logs?

Are we able to view historical data forever or is the data purged after a certain time?
James GarvinJames Garvin (Okta)
It is strongly suggested that you integrate with a SIEM, like Splunk, for archival purposes.  

Okta also provides an API endpoint to pull the system logs from Okta into your own system(s).

Customer authentication logs are retained for 6 months in Okta. As James says if a customer requires a longer retention period, they must run their own SIEM.
