Function to restore a view, report, dashboard, that have been deleted

Hi Yellowfin

I have several times at different customer sites met the fact that BI developers accidentially deletes a view and by that also delete the content that this view is related to.

The same with a dashboard.

We always have to restore the config-database with work-loss depending on the timing of the delete or export/import content again by restoring on another instance, exporting and then importing the content to the production. I know that Yellowfin in the config-database have all the deleted records and associated content marked "DELETED", so it should be possible to build an administrator-function, that could recover an old version of a view, report or dashboard that have been deleted.

Hope this can get a high priority as it is a pain to do that exercise.

Look at this article which describes some of the problem (dashboards/reports)

Hi Dan,

I hope all is well,

Unfortunately we have had no movement on this idea raised, however going forward I have placed some notes in this ticket that we have with the development team.

I would also like to question who your account manager is so I can make them aware of this request from yourself.
