Good afternoon, I hope you're well?
Thanks for reaching out on the forums regarding your query.

From the Features by Release:
"A new setting in the Inventory tab of the System Settings page authorizes automatic cleanup of records of inventory devices that were once reporting inventory through the FlexNet inventory agent, but now have stopped reporting for your chosen period of time. The setting is in the Obsolete inventory section of the tab.

The default setting is Never, meaning that cleanup of inventory devices is not performed."
https://docs.flexera.com/fnms/EN/features/index.html#FeatureList/2021R1-3/RN-new-ObsolFIACleanup.html

By default, Inventory Devices are only removed if joined to an Active Directory domain and removed from the Domain, and this Domain is inventoried by a Beacon.

The removal of the linked Inventory Device would not remove the Asset record.

Best regards,
Jack

I'm not sure exactly what "cleanup" process you're referring to here, but I think the following may address the core of your question: there is nothing built in to Flexera One ITAM that will automatically delete asset records.
