Hello Wonderful People,
As per the question, is there a Cobalt Snapshot equivalent for D365FO?
Can you explain what a "Cobalt Snapshot" is? If it is related to backups, it is managed by Microsoft. Note that there is a self service tool to create additional backups: docs.microsoft.com/.../copy-operations-database
If I understand correctly, your actual question is: can I export backup data from my D365FO system and store it myself? Is this correct? If not, please share your business requirement.
You can copy database from prod system to a sandbox (test) system. And from there you can export it and save it locally if you wish to.
Thank you for the replies, I was referring to the product demoed here:
Apologies for the poor wording of my question, I've been asked how we would restore an individual deleted record? It would obviously not be desirable to restore a 2 month old database back-up for the sake of one record. I appreciate that users should never be able to delete anything, but what if it were to happen (eg an Admin mistake)? Grateful for any pointers administrating D365FO is quite new to me, the first thing I want to be absolutely clear on is the Business Continuity/Recovery side of things should the worst happen.
Well, records are dependent on other records so you can't just click some button and restore a record. In F&O the data is much more complex than in CE.
The prod database always has 35 days of history saved. You can pick any point in time during that 35 days and restore that version to your sandbox system. Then you can see the "deleted record" and recreate it in Prod using the user interface, if applicable.
Thank you Nikolaos, that's why I was drawn to the 'deep restore' feature of Snapshot that would restore child records of records, but since you're saying that F&O data is much more complex that probably explains why they haven't create a product for F&O.
My worry would be if a missing record was not picked up within the 35 days...but maybe I'm worrying about a problem that doesn't exist. Presumably I can set up an audit report + workflow to send out an email to the Sys admin to flag any deletions, I shall look there next. Thanks again.
