The run time is configurable through the SQL Server Management Studio console for SQL Server instances that do not have an Express Edition. 

Users can set "Keep data for" that defines how long Job History data will be kept before being groomed in the daily 1:00 AM job. If users do not specify this setting, the default value is 30 days.
