Release AdminStudio Receipt

When Workflow Manager, when performing an AdminStudio Integration workflow step, calls the AdminStudio API, the AdminStudio API returns a Receipt ID that helps keep track of transactions.

If this option is selected, then Workflow Manager calls another API to release these Receipt IDs.
If this option is not selected and Receipt IDs are not released, then they keep adding to database size. Receipt IDs, if not released, can help keep a history of transactions.

Note • It is recommended that this option be selected.
