Package deployment backout?

We've been looking for 5 years (see PDN question)

[this is posted elsewhere in Mesh, but I can't access it anymore..]

When Pega does a package install (or deployment, migration), it does 2 things:

  • Inserts new rule/data records
  • Updates existing rule/data records

Following best practice, the insert is of a new version, and not replacements to an existing version.

If necessary, this can be reverted by ruleset-limiting in the application.

How to revert the updates?

The update stores the previous records in History-Data-xxx... couldn't there be a way to programmatically restore the version prior to the install time?

If it did that, a deployment undo could be fairly trivial, and not require a database restore.
