If you go to servers and select  database name  it will be opened a window to allow you configure LTR policies, but then these options are not saved.

Reproduction steps:

1.- Go to servers - Manage Backups - Configure policies and press on database name



2.- You set 3 weeks to keep, of any other option (it doesn't matter) . When you press Save , nothing happens.



The right way to do configure retention policies

Instead of press over database select, select database and then press on “ Configure retention ” option. Then select 3 weeks for retention or any other option and after press Save change will get set correctly.
