Recover deleted PI Vision displays from a Recycle Bin
Deleting a folder of PI VISION displays is too easy.
An admin can delete a folder with all it's contents (displays) with only 2 clicks... (delete > Acknowledge deletion).
It would be really helpful if PI Vision could have a "recycle bin" functionality such that if someone accidentally deletes a display (or a folder of displays) it would be easy to recover such displays\folders from a recycle bin instead of having to restore all PI VISION database from a backup...
Just had to bend over backwards because someone accidentally deleted a critical display (Delete Display is right next to the Save button). Would be great to have a recycling bin.
with the new version of pivision allowing for export of pivision displays to .PDIX files, it should be relatively small code change to create a dumpster folder and push deleted displays as pdix to there, but if the old versions of displays could be stored in a version table for recovery that would be best. it can be a major pain recovering displays that have been deleted. if a folder is deleted, that would be really bad. Restoring displays by using the display mover to move from a separate pivision recovery server means thet restored displays get new display IDs, and all the displays that referenced the old display number have to be found and manually edited. a recover from recycle bin option would help a lot. Also, please disable the delete button if a display is set to read only!
Very good idea ! Will make the restoration much easier and really feasible.
