Question:
We have accidental deletion of our release. We have the Release id of the deleted release is there a possibility to restore the same.
Environment:
Continuous Delivery Director: 6.6 and higher
Answer:
In case the release is removed from the DB it can't be restored. You can verify the same by querying the DB with below query.

select * from <CDD_SCHEMA_NAME>.releases where id = <THE RELEASE ID AS YOU HAVE>;"

As currently there is no Audit information available in CDD it will be an enhancement request to have such feature in CDD which will not protect a user with desired permission from removing the release but it will enable to audit the system with What?, When? and Who?

As per recommendation we recommend considering current features to examine the assigned roles to end users. It might be that someone who should only be a designer is assigned with higher role which enabled deletion.
