Restoring relationships

When you restore an object's membersmembershipsownersownerships, or role assignments folder, you are reestablishing the links to the connected objects.

For example, if you restore a group's members folder, you are making users and groups again members of the group. You are not recreating the members. 

Only all of an object's relationships can be reestablished at a time. It is not possible to reestablish the link to just to one object (e.g., to one member).


Restore an object's relationships

1. Locate the folder inside the object.

2. Optional: If you want to restore an older version of the item, select the Snapshots Viewer icon, and then select an earlier snapshot. You will now be viewing data from that particular time.

3. Select ••• > Restore.

4. Select Yes to restore the item. 

Note: To restore multiple items at a time, select the items. In the toolbar, select Restore.
