Viewing and restoring archived Tickets

For Alloy Navigator Enterprise On-Prem

Alloy Navigator remove archived Ticket records from the original database so users can no longer see those records in the Desktop or Web Apps. As the administrator, you can look through the list of archived Tickets in the Settings App, view any record and restore them one by one. When you restore Tickets, they reappear in the original database and will be available for users again.

Limitations for restoring archived Ticket records include the following:

  • History and Related Objects cannot be archived or restored

  • Related CIs and Related Tickets (e.g. Related Problems, Parent / Child Tickets, etc.) are not restored

  • Specific Activities data (i.e. Category, Published, and Time Spent) is not restored

  • Tickets calculated values (i.e. Time Spent and Cumulative Time Spent) are not restored

IMPORTANT: Alloy Navigator 2022 does not allow browsing archive databases created with earlier versions of the product. When you access an old archive database for the first time, you will be prompted to update it to the latest version. Be sure to allow enough time for this procedure. During the update process, other operations with the Settings will be blocked. If needed, you can interrupt the update with the Break button. When you restart, the process will be continued and the data will be preserved. We recommend that you update your archived databases as part of your post-migration activities.

To view or restore archived Tickets:

  1. From the Settings Sidebar, navigate to Services > Archiving > Archive Databases.

  2. In the middle pane, you can see the list of archive databases along with object classes: Incidents, Work Orders, etc. Choose a database and an object class to view.

  3. In the right pane, you can see a grid showing Tickets from a chosen class. This grid is similar to Desktop App data grids. You can use filtering, sorting, grouping, and view customization capabilities, just like in the Desktop App.

  4. To view detailed information about a Ticket, double-click it in the grid or select a Ticket and click Open. The Archived object window opens.

  5. In the Archived object window, you can see the General, Activity, and Attachments tabs. To add other fields to the General tab, click the Show Fields button and choose necessary fields.

  6. To restore a Ticket, click the Restore Ticket button in the Archived object window. You can also select a Ticket in the grid and click the Restore Ticket button.
