The Metazoa Snapshot Org Management product can automatically roll back Salesforce Metadata deployments to any previous state. This is a key technology for backing up and restoring an Org after undesirable customizations are detected. Salesforce administrators can see the differences in any Org over time, and restore the Org as needed.
Snapshot provides powerful tools for restoring a Salesforce Org to any previous state. You will need to be sure that your Org has a Time Series of metadata backups. This capability is easy to set up in the Snapshot product. When you need to restore Metadata to any Salesforce Org, the Roll Back Deployment dialog has options that make this automatic.
The Roll Back Deployment dialog uses time series snapshot data to restore the destination org to an earlier date. Any one of the earlier snapshots can be selected as the source. The destination org can be refreshed and continually compared to the source until everything has been restored. The Calculate Differences button will calculate all of the differences in the source and destination org to assemble the Create and Delete Job List.
In some situations, you will get better results with the Swap Create and Delete button. In that case, the time series of earlier Job Lists are merged and flipped. Often you will only need to restore some part of a deployment. This dialog documents all of the changes and the historical Job Lists in one interface. The menu at the top of the Roll Back Deployment Metadata dialog provides three options:
When you are deploying assets to a production org, you must use a Transactional Deployment. This option has the advantage of rolling back all changes if there is an error. Sometimes for more complex migrations, you will need to make multiple deployments.
