Reseting DataStore without reseting bundles

hai all,

is there anyways to reset the datastore but not the bundles?

Hi there -

Unfortunately when you reset the datastore, all the device objects go away, and the bundles aren’t assigned to anything. I’m not aware of a way to automatically restore the assignments, because when the EH starts discovering data again, the devices will have new device IDs. You will have to reassign your bundles after a datastore reset.

To be clear, though, bundles aren’t removed on a datastore reset. Only the assignments to devices are removed. Which isn’t a whole lot better, but at least saves you the step of uploading the bundles again. Hope that helps.

Exactly right. The good news is that if the bundles are assigned to dynamic groups (i.e. device names, or activity types), then those can be re-applied quickly. When a dsreset happens, previously uploaded bundles are still available to apply, and the dynamic assignments are valid. Static assignments, I’m afraid, won’t be honored, since, as @dt1 mentioned, the object IDs will be different when discovered again.

so i guess I have to backup the bundles, reapply them again after reseting the datastores (e.g. triggers and alerts)…

well thank for the enlightment… :smiley:
