Recycle Bin for Deleted CIs in UCMDB

Recycle Bin for Deleted CIs in UCMDB

The aging reports are often hard to read, not monitored properly and aging may delete large chunks of data. Working with several UCMDBs I often need to see what has been deleted by enrichments or by mistake and eventually to undelete the deleted Cis. I would love to have the option to see what has been deleted in more detail that the Audit Report available in Custom Reports section, as well as eventually to undelete the CI and relationships in question.

Cheers,

Would this data be useful form Solr/Recon Analyzer?

It would be interesting implementation, but isn't Solr retaining only the indexed attributes and the ranked CI types defined? Would that be enough to restore the CIs?

Another option, which we use in ServiceNow implementation, is to have a status = active/inactive attribute. When the status changes to inactive, the CI disappears. Of course in this case it should be done on an internal level.

We create similar utility by ourself. It check history and can repair deleted CIs and relations. If such function would be in OOB it would be good.
