Restoring the earlier state of a rule

Updated on November 18, 2021

During application development, you can undo recent changes to a rule and replace the current rule with a previous copy, even if another developer created the newer copies.

Before you begin: Ensure that you have the @baseclass.ToolbarFull privilege.
When you resotre a rule, consider the following circumstances:
  • You do not need to use the Restore operation to fall back to a rule instance that is in a lower-numbered version. Use the Delete toolbar button to delete the current higher-numbered version or versions that mask or override a lower-numbered version.
  • If you want to change the lower numbered version but the version is locked, use Save As, not Restore, to copy — promote — an older version to the current unlocked higher version.
  1. Open the current version of the rule.
  2. Click the History tab.
  3. Click the View full history button to view a list of snapshots in a new window.
  4. Details display that contains the state you want. Click the rule history button to open the older, historical state of this rule instance. The padlock image indicates that this is not the current rule, not that the rule is checked out to you.
  5. Click the Restore button for the state that you want to make current.
