Solution Conflict Resolution: Top Wins can’t be rolled back? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to implement a patch mechanism for my main solution such that when I publish the patch on top of a main managed solution, it changes its behavior. I like to be able to roll back the patch solution by deleting it. To do this I tried the following experiment:

    1. I imported a managed (S1_Managed) solution that only includes the a web resource named test.html.
    2. Then I created a solution (S2_Unmanaged) and used “Add Existing” button to add the S1_Managed->test.html.
    3. Then I modified (uploaded another file) the S2_Unmanaged->test.html.
    4. I verified test.html url shows the modifies contents that I uploaded in the step#3
    5. I deleted the solution S2_Unmanaged. I expected that the changes in the step#3 are rolled back. They are not!!!, the changes  result of S2_Unmanaged stay for ever, even I delete it !!!!?

    Is there any way to rollback the changes once the solution S2 is deleted?

    Thank you,

    PS: I went through the following article, but I couldn't find my answer:

  • managed solution deletes the components when the solution is deleted.

    in case of unmanaged solution the changes will have to be manually rolled back.

    you could create a new managed solution and import it as step3.

  • Hi amx,

    You need to go to customization and make changes to default solution if you want to roll back changes of deleted unmanaged solution.

    Another way is to create another unmanaged/managed solution with rollbacks you want to achieve and deploy it.

  • Hello,

    Install your managed solution and select overwrite option will bring your web resource in original state.
