Is it possible to restore a User that was inadvertantly deleted from EPDM? Would prefer to restore rather than recreate user as user had files checked out at time of deletion.
Any viable solutions are appreciated.
Have solved the issue. Logged in as Admin and was able to Undo Check Out. Did not lose any data as user had files locally on machine. When user Checked Out files was prompted with overwrite message which was accepted. All data is correct.
Regarding Restoring Deleted User - is this possible OR do you just recreate the user as we did?
Followup to issue. When user was deleted, the user had files checked out. When rt clicking on files which are checked out, the following options are greyed out, thus no access.
Undo Check Out
The initial thought was to Undo Check Out by user. This would lose some data but allow us to access the file, however this is not possible.
Any thoughts or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Send me an email - I have an idea...
No, I was going to tell you how to restore the user if you were in a bind.
Recreating the user will not solve the problem because the user will have a new unique ID...
Glad you got it sorted....
Is it as simple as changing a flag in the DB in the user table? I've thought about it once as we had a user come back but wasn't sure if it was that easy. So I ended up creating another identical username.
Where is this located?
In the sql vault database....table claed "Users". There is a column called "enabled"....either 0 or 1. I was thinking maybe you could change it to reenable a user. System also seems to append the date deleted to the login name so you would probably have to remove it.
I'm just speculated here......SolidWorks frowns upon directly editing the tables so proceed at your own risk.......and always backup the db. Joy has more insight into this I'm sure.
Retrieving data ...
