Is it possible to rollback everything (except source control)

Caroline Smith (4611923) | asked Dec 06 '12, 4:53 a.m.
I have managed to get myself into a complete mess trying to reconfigure our RTC workflow to use a a new Kanban workflow.  Yesterday a colleague showed me how to roll back the configuration by viewing the history of the Process Configuration Source and reverting to that.

I did this and thought it would solve all my issues but I soon realized that this made it even worse. My problem is that I also made thousands of bulk changes to work items (changing old stories into requirements so that our new stories could use a different workflow to the old ones) but this completely messed everything up.  I need to be able to roll back everything except source control changes to how it was on Friday Evening.  

I am using the eclipse client V3.0.1

Please tell me there is a way to do this.

Caroline, you could try to change the types back using the approach described here: I am not aware of a way to roll back the data, except restoring to a backup. Sorry.

I didn't have a back up to roll back to but after a lot of manual work I managed to get it back to some sort of a state of normality again.  I have learned a lot about what not to do in RTC this week !

I would suggest to set up a test environment and test your ideas before you make heavy changes in the production system.
