Restore an Issue to a point in its History


I have an issue (type = Epic) that has had several changes/updates to it over time.  I want to "roll back" to a specific entry in the History log for this issue.  Can that be done?  Or, do I have to painstakingly copy/paste from the history log back into the current instance of the issue?

Hi @will_cummings

Unfortunately you can't. However, you can look into the history and manually revert the changes one by one to ensure it matches the right information.


Thanks Fabian.  I was afraid of that.  Well, at least I now know I can quit beating my head against the wall trying to figure out how....  ;-)

My team at Rewind built an automated backup and restore app for this problem. Right now, it provides a site-level Restore, but we're working on releasing an item-level Restore feature in Q3 that should be what you are looking for.
