Need your help to restore any object which has been removed. As we
understand that each object is version controlled , we need to fetch the
Not sure what you exactly mean, but given on the description there'd be 2 possible answers :
What if the object is deleted the DB Unload has run (=the deleted object is no longer in the Recycle Bin)?
Is it then possible to restore the object ?
If DB Unload has run then the object has been deleted from the database. There is no way to restore it directly.
One (complicated) way to achieve this would be to use a backup copy of the DB, and start an AE instance that runs on this DB, then export the object.
Also, to prevent this from occurring you can run DB Unload with "-K" parameter so that the recycle bin does not get emptied.
We had deleted a workflow yesterday by mistake and today someone wanted the workflow restored. The DB Unload has run and emtied the Recycle Bin, so that means there is no way of restoring it.
I´m afraid so... Was it in Dev / Prod / QA ? Maybe there is another version of this workflow in another environment?
Antoine_Sauteron, does it make a difference if you have OBJECT_AUDIT = Y in UC_CLIENT_SETTINGS?
or VERSION_MANAGEMENT = Y
Unfortunately it doesn't. The object gets deleted along with its previous versions.
to avoid these issues we do an export of all objects on a daily basis. For this we use a java tool that exports the automic objects and creates the same structure in the filesystem like in AE User interface tree.
Other possibility would be to do a daily unload of all objects.
Hi wolfgangbruecker. Just wondering what java tool you use and/or an easy way to do this daily export that you spoke of. We just ran into this issue today (someone deleted an object and our daily unload process emptied the Recycle Bin). I found this thread and I think we will start using the -k option and only empty the Recycle Bin x a month (vs. daily) but am also interested in this daily export. Thanks.
thats a consultant tool made years ago from an uc4 consultant.
maybe meanwhile its available at marketplace.
