Orphans cleanup does not clean recently deleted repos

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • having recently deleted custom repos or disabled Red Hat repos
  • running pulp-3 orphans cleanup either via foreman-rake katello:delete_orphaned_content script or via direct pulp API call

But content from the recently removed/disabled repos still occupies /var/lib/pulp/media/artifact directory.
