Hi Heather,Unfortunately, IBM hasn't added this functionality yet and I hope in the near future they will!There are few other options you have, like using a third-party application called MotioCI which will cost you a bit but honestly it's a good product and give you piece of mind. Again it depends on your BI budget. If budget is an issue, there may be another less hectic way rather restore entire content store but befoer I make further any comments, I need to get a bit more details about your current BI folder structures.If you are interested, please feel free to contact us email@example.com and one of our support gurus will help you.Thanks
This is a pretty critical topic for any PROD environment - keep in mind the realities that there is NO "recycle" area for deleted content, that process is irreversible. OK, so now that we know this, some content management process must be in place to address it. If you don't use a 3rd party tool such as MotioCI, a good practice (although time-consuming) is to keep the XML report specs for each Production artifact in a "safe" location, such as an on-premise and/or a cloud file-based backup repository. Build this into your required practices, in addition to good report documentation. Reconstructing reports from detailed, standardized, and current documentation is always a key benefit of adhering to good documentation practice (not to mention the many others). Same can be said of your metadata - also much more important if you are building robust metadata via Data Modules - they can be accidentally deleted just as easily!
@Scott Misage When you say 'post processing', how did you go about this? Was a framework package built against these audit tables and a Business Analytics report designed against the AE_CONTENTAUDIT_SPEC?
Thank you for you quick responses!Jen
@NORBERT Bracke What other options are available/used to be able to report on what fields are used most/least in business analytics reports?
