Restoring Application Artifacts and Data from a Snapshot

You can restore application artifacts and data from previous snapshots. For example, you can restore the artifacts and data to the state they were in a few days ago by restoring them from a snapshot that you backed up to a local machine.

Before restoring application artifacts, you should upload the source snapshot to the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud environment. Snapshots that you create or upload to the service are stored for 60 days, after which they are automatically deleted. See these sources for information on uploading snapshots to an environment:

  • The EPM Automate uploadfile command in Working with EPM Automate for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud

  • "Uploading Archives to the Service" in Administering Migration for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud

To restore artifacts from a snapshot:

  1. Access the environment as a Service Administrator. See Accessing EPM Cloud.
  2. Complete a step:
    • Click Application and then Migration.
    • Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud only: Click Migration.
    • Profitability and Cost Management only: Click Console and then Actions(Migration).
  3. Click Snapshots.
  4. Select the snapshot that you want to use as the source to restore artifacts.
    • To restore all artifacts of a specific component:

      1. Expand the snapshot, and then click a component name; for example HP–Vision to list artifacts of the Vision sample application included in the snapshot.

      2. Click Import.

    • To restore specific artifacts of service components:

      1. Expand the snapshot, and then click a component name; for example HP–Vision to access a list of artifacts of the Vision sample application included in the snapshot.

      2. In Artifact List, expand the list of available artifacts, and then select the artifacts you want to restore.

      3. Click Close to return to Artifact Snapshots.
      4. Optional: Repeat the preceding steps to select artifacts from other components included in the snapshot.

  5. Click Selected Artifacts button (Selected Artifacts), and then verify the list of artifacts selected for export.
  6. Click Actions, and then select Import.
  7. Click OK.
    The Migration Status Report opens. Click Refresh to verify that the operation completes without errors. Click Cancel to close the report.
