Rollback deleted entities
Updated over a week ago

All the entities deleted within a rollback window are available for rollback. Each delete action (can include multiple entities) corresponds to a delete request.

You can choose to rollback:

  • Multiple delete requests at the same time

  • All entities in a single delete request

  • Selective entities from a single delete request

Use case

Let’s say you have configured the rollback window for seven days on 1st January and on 8th January, a rogue administrator deletes 10 users at one time. A single delete request is created for all 10 users. The delete request details will contain information about all those users. Here, you can choose to rollback some or all of the users, or you can rollback another delete request with this delete request; a single rollback request will be created.

View deleted entities

The following views are available to help you to understand your data deletes before you perform a rollback:

  • Deletion summary of all the workloads

  • List of delete requests

  • Details of each delete request

📝 Note
Only the entities with active delete requests are listed in the left navigation. For example, if there are no user deletion requests, the Users category will not be displayed in the left navigation.

To view a deletion summary of all the workloads you are protecting

The Rollback Action’s Overview page provides a deletion summary in the following cards

  • Summary: View information of total delete requests and the corresponding data size in bytes available for rollback.

  • Delete Requests: View the number of delete requests available for rollback for each entity type.


To view the delete requests listing

All the delete requests are listed on the respective Delete Requests page of each entity type.
