Setting workstep properties : Defining a Rollback : Using Properties view

Using Properties view

You can also define a rollback using the Advanced tab of the workstep’s Properties view.
To define the rollback point:
1. Click the Advanced tab of the Properties view of the target workstep to which you want to roll back.
2. From the On Activation tab, select the Create rollback point check box.
Note: The first time a rollback workstep is activated, BP Server takes a snapshot of all selected dataslot values for later replacement.
3. To select one or more dataslots that will retain their original values during a rollback, click the ellipsis button beside the Save dataslot values for box, to open the Save dataslot values dialog box.
You need to specify the dataslot names for replacement because some processes use many dataslots and restoring all dataslot values in each rollback can compromise server performance. This option helps the workflow process to replace the selected dataslot values with the original dataslot values.
a. To add dataslots, click Add to open the Select Dataslots dialog box, in which you can select any dataslots containing the value you want to save. Click OK to add it to the Save Dataslot Values table.
To remove one or more dataslots from the table, select the dataslot names and click Remove. To edit a user-defined dataslot, select the dataslot and click Modify.
b. Click OK to save your selections.
