I agree it's a complex operation...which is why it'd be nice to have automated. I look forward to Vault 7. This would make labels much more powerful. The ability to try something in the main line, find out it's not working, and roll the whole project back without branching would be huge.

Hi! Bringing up an older topic, but I have the same question. We are on version 8.0.1 Standard. Is it possible to rollback a Label?

We use your API to create a Promotion tool that moves Labels (and their programs associated with the label) to our QA server. Is there a simple way to rollback? I saw the comments above, but when I right click on a folder, I don't see an archive option.
Thanks!

There currently isn't a label rollback.

When you are talking about moving the code in a label to a QA server, are you talking about performing a Get on that label to the QA server? Do you possibly need the code on the server to return to what it was previously and not the code inside Vault?

The ability to undo the GET on the QA server based on what the label contains.

e.g. we move label A with 10 programs to our QA server Then for whatever reason, they want to undo that.

I can custom code a solution, but was checking if there was something already baked into Vault.
Thanks!

Thanks for the explanation. That's different than this thread.

Are the GETs on the QA server always labels? If so, you can go back to the previous label pushed to that server and Get on it again.

That would work on any existing code, but if new code was pushed via label B, repromoting label A won't remove that new program.

You can close the ticket - it's not a big deal - I just thought I'd ask.
Thanks!
