Restore using API
It is also possible to manage deleted Projects and Users via the API. We describe it in our developers guide: Undelete API.
Restore Work Items
Undelete action for work items (User Stories, Tasks, Bugs, Features, Epics, Requests, Releases, Sprints etc.) is not supported for users within UI. However it is possible to restore entities through direct database access. Data recovery scripts are executed by Support Team members per your request.
Should you require any entities to be recovered, please contact our Support Team by email email@example.com. Please attach additional information about the entities you want to restore:
- type and ID# of entities
- when and by whom were they deleted
- what project contained them
- what is the URL address of your Targetprocess account
