How to reset the Ribbon? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I used the Ribbon Workbench to make a change to my Ribbon but the changes caused problems. I tried loading a backup but that isn't working either. How can I rest the Ribbon on a custom entity?

  • Hi

    If you want to rollback the ribbon to it's original state (i.e. the state of the ribbon as it existed when the entity was first created) you will need to modify the RibbonXML manually by creating solution which only contains the Application Ribbon and your custom entity. Export the solution as unmanaged and unzip the solution zip file. Open the customizations.xml file and search for RibbonDiffXml. Remove everything inside the <RibbonDiffXml> tag and then save and rezip the file. Import it back into CRM and publish all customizations.

    The ribbon should reset to it's original state.
