How to discard unwanted changes

Jump to solution

Hi

I have a problem with a R80.30 cluster. I had made some changes to interfaces which seem to have caused some topology changes to other interfaces. I have also made other simple policy changes. 

I have published these changes but the install fails each time with various errors about topology, interfaces etc.

In total I have over 95 changes from 4 sessions that i want to simply discard and forget about and not to install.

I have followed the advice in this link:

https://community.checkpoint.com/t5/Policy-Management/R80-Change-Control-A-Visual-Guide/td-p/39702

and reverted to a previous known version but the 95 pending changes still seem to be pending installation and i don't know how to get rid of them.

How is this done?

FW2.PNGi reverted to an earlier version but the pending changes are still there.FW1.PNGI'm stuck with these changes in the install queue

FW3.PNGno option to discard

Unfortunately yes, in R80.30 and earlier you can revert policy changes as specified in my "Visual Guide" post but you cannot revert changes to objects.  In the R80.40 EA you can highlight a revision and pick "Revert to this version" to essentially undo every change (including objects) performed since that revision was published.  This capability is more or less the same as restoring a Database Revision in R77.30 management. 

Once R80.40 goes GA I'm planning to update my R80+ Change Control: A Visual Guide post with this very welcome new capability.

As stated in the article you linked, you can install the policy to a gateway as it was previously installed (e.g. using Install Specific Version).
The changes you made in the management, however, remain in the management.
If you want to undo the changes, this must be done manually currently.
R80.40 is expected to have revision control so these changes can be reverted.

Ah.. manually.. So i have to go in and pick apart each change one by one?
