Restoring a single record from backup. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has any one found the need or urge to create an extension/plugin that could essentially copy entity data from a "restored" backup?  For example, nightly database backups are made and can be restored to a different environment for "research".  Using an extension/plugin, could a record be copied from one database to the another as long as the backup and target databases are the same organizations with the same guids and etc?

  • I would think one way to do it would be to create a "mirror" site.  Using the second site, pull all the pertainent data and using an extension re-create the record on the original site.  The key would be the relationships.  This is probably easier to accomplish with custom entities moreso than with the normal CRM entities such as Account and Contact.
