Undo a Data Replication Process

You can roll back the most recent transfer & publishing or publishing data replication process.

  1. Select Administration > Replication > Data Replication. A list of existing data replication processes is displayed.
  2. Copy an existing process or create a new one.
    • To copy an existing process, select it in the list, then click Copy. You can select multiple processes and copy them all at once. If you want to modify a generated process, click its process ID to open its details page, then click Edit.
    • To create a replication process from scratch, click New, then continue with the steps to configure it.
  3. The system generates a process ID. You can enter a different ID.
  4. From the dropdown list, select a target instance.
  5. (Optional) Enter a description.
  6. To refresh the page cache on the target instance at the end of the replication process, select Invalidate. It is selected by default. Clearing the cache temporarily degrades your site's performance, so in some cases you might want to select Do not invalidate. However, if you don't refresh the cache, shoppers could see outdated content on the storefront. Use the Do not invalidate option with caution.
  7. From the Activation Type dropdown list, select Manual.
  8. From the dropdown list, select a notification email trigger. You can enter multiple target email addresses separated by commas.
    Option Description
    -None- No emails are sent.
    When Process Ends Sends an email to the specified addresses when the process ends, whether it succeeds or fails. If it hangs, then no email is sent.
    When Process Fails Sends an email to the specified addresses if the process fails. If the process succeeds or hangs, then no email is sent.
    Periodically Enter a number of minutes. While the process is running, emails are sent to the specified addresses at that interval until the process finishes. An email is also sent when the process succeeds or fails.
    The email notifications contain the start and end time of the process, the target system, the replication type, and the included replication tasks. In case of a failure, an error code is also included. Each process in a recurring series sends its own notification.
  9. Click Next.
  10. From the dropdown list, select the Undo replication type.
  11. Click Next and review the process details.
  12. Click Create.
  13. Find the process in the list and click Start.
