SelfService - refresh a VDB from a specific snapshot (or time) of dSource

  • 1.  SelfService - refresh a VDB from a specific snapshot (or time) of dSource

    Posted 01-17-2022 05:44:00 AM
    Hello,

    When we create a SelfService account for VDB that is directly created from a dSource and then use "refresh" operation, it automatically refreshes from the latest available snapshot of dSource.

    In we case we require that VDB to be refreshed from a specific snapshot or point-in-time between snapshots, is it possible? How can we do this?

    I checked the SelfService GUI but did not see such option.

    Is it possible?

    BR,

    Hi Rahim,
    This was being discussed internally the other day. It looks like it is possible, though you are not able to select a specific snapshot.

    However, from what I gathered in that conversation: "You can select a point in time on the timeline and then choose a container to Restore to that point-in-time. It's Activity 5 on this page:
    https://docs.delphix.com/docs/delphix-self-service/delphix-self-service-data-user-guide/data-container-activities"

    Let me know if that helps.

    Thank you,
    Michael
