The Roll Back Deployment interface will allow you to select a previous snapshot from the time series and revert the current snapshot back to that state. This interface is available by right clicking a deployment arrow on the desktop and also from the Options Menu.
Metazoa Snapshot Roll Back Deployment is a feature that allows you to deploy metadata to a destination and also rollback a deployment if needed. This documentation provides a step-by-step guide on how to perform a rollback deployment using the Metazoa Snapshot Roll Back Deployment feature.
Before performing a rollback deployment, ensure that you have the following:
- Access to Metazoa Snapshot Roll Back Deployment feature.
- Knowledge of the destination snapshot and its associated time series backups.
- Understanding of the deployment history and the desired rollback point.
- Familiarity with the job lists and their functionalities.
Performing a Rollback Deployment
Follow these steps to perform a rollback deployment using Metazoa Snapshot Roll Back Deployment:
Select the Snapshot: Identify the snapshot to which you want to roll back. This can be determined based on the deployment history and time series backups associated with the destination snapshot.
Use the Calculate Differences Button: At the top of the interface, you will find a button labeled "Calculate Differences." Click on this button to generate a list of differences between the selected snapshot and the current state.
- This list will include items that were created and deleted between the two snapshots.
Review the Differences: Examine the calculated differences in the create and delete job lists. These lists will show the specific changes that occurred between the selected snapshot and the current state.
- The create job list displays the objects that were created.
- The delete job list displays the objects that were deleted.
Adjust Job Lists (Optional): Depending on your requirements, you can modify the create and delete job lists manually to handle specific circumstances or partial deployments.
Swap Create and Delete Job Lists (Optional): If you prefer to reverse the actions, you can swap the create and delete job lists. This means that objects created in the selected snapshot will be deleted, and deleted objects will be created during the rollback deployment.
Initiate Rollback Deployment: Once you have reviewed and adjusted the job lists, click on the "Deploy Metadata" button to start the rollback deployment process.
- This action will restore the metadata to its state as captured in the selected snapshot.
Verification: After the rollback deployment, verify that the metadata has been rolled back successfully. Review the deployment results and ensure that the desired changes have been reverted.
It's important to note that there is no "magic bullet" to revert to any arbitrary previous metadata snapshot. The Metazoa Snapshot Roll Back Deployment feature provides tools to help generate a create and delete job list for a rollback, but specific circumstances may require additional manual adjustments.
While using the Calculate Differences and Deploy Metadata features, ensure that you have the necessary permissions and understand the implications of the changes being made.
If you encounter any issues or need further assistance during the rollback deployment process, refer to the Metazoa documentation or contact the Metazoa support team for guidance.
Metazoa Snapshot Roll Back Deployment offers a convenient and efficient way to deploy and rollback metadata changes. By following the steps outlined in this documentation, you can confidently perform a rollback deployment to revert metadata changes to a previous state.
