This article covers details around reverting to a backup in Appian Cloud.
See the documentation for details on how Appian Cloud data is backed up. These backups are performed by taking snapshots of the customer site(s). A snapshot is a complete copy of the site at a specific point in time, which includes not only the environment data, but also the version and hotfix the site was running at that point in time. Customers may also request a planned backup to be coordinated at a specific date and time for a cost.
Reversions can be useful in many different scenarios. Some common examples are:
Appian Cloud follows a similar backup strategy to the one documented here. It is important to note that when reverting to a backup, everything including environment data and site version will be rolled back to ensure consistency. It is not possible to just change the Appian version independently from the data that was on the site at the time of the backup.
This article applies to all versions of Appian Cloud.
