Restoring Archived Items

You can restore archived items if you have the Restore Item from Archive and the View All Archived Items privileges. You can restore only inactive primary items.

Use the Advanced Search feature to find the item in the archive. After it is displayed, click the Restore button to move the item from the archive back to the project so that it can be reopened for more work.

To restore archived items:

  1. Use the Advanced Search feature to find archived items that you want to restore. For details, refer to Searching for Archived Items.
  2. On the Search Results page, click the item link for the item you want to restore.
  3. Detailed information about the selected item appears in the Item Details pane. A Restore from Archive button is also available. Click the button and a message appears confirming the action.

After confirming the restore action, the item is moved from the Archive table to the active or original table. It is then deleted from the Archive table. After the item is moved from the archive, you can update and transition it.
