We have recently moved to slurm 22.05.8 and have configured job_container/tmpfs to allow private tmp folders.

job_container.conf contains:

And in slurm.conf we have set

I can see the folders being created and they are being used but when a job completes the root folder is not being cleaned up.

Example of running job:
[root at papr-res-compute204 ~]# ls -al /slurm/14292874
total 32
drwx------   3 root      root    34 Mar  1 13:16 .
drwxr-xr-x 518 root      root 16384 Mar  1 13:16 ..
drwx------   2 mzethoven root     6 Mar  1 13:16 .14292874
-r--r--r--   1 root      root     0 Mar  1 13:16 .ns

Example once job completes /slurm/<jobid> remains:
[root at papr-res-compute204 ~]# ls -al /slurm/14292794
total 32
drwx------   2 root root     6 Mar  1 09:33 .
drwxr-xr-x 518 root root 16384 Mar  1 13:16 ..

Is this to be expected or should the folder /slurm/<jobid> also be removed?
Do I need to create an epilog script to remove the directory that is left?

Many thanks for the assistance,
