Apply Config Button

Hey there,

I accidentally deleted an incoming route, and while it's no big deal to re-program, it was the Catch_Unhandled route. Now I haven't hit the Apply Config button, so in theory it hasn't been set to ROM yet. So I don't see an undo button anywhere, so I figured I'll reboot the system and it will flush the RAM. Well, I reboot, log back in, and the Apply Config banner is still across the top.

Is there a way to not apply what I just did? Or am I past the point of no return?

RE: Apply Config Button

When you Submit / Save changes, they are written into a database. When you press the Apply Configuration bar, it reads data from the database and applies the changes to the running software. This approach allows you to make many changes (saving each into the database) and then apply all the changes just once.

In order to undo some changes, a rollback in the database would be needed. At this time, the system does not keep any history of database transactions and therefore there is no rollback (i.e., no Undo).

RE: Apply Config Button

@UCXGUY Is there a way to view the database that the pending changes reside in? There are times when I log into systems only to find the apply settings bar available in the GUI would love to be able to see what is pending in those instances.

RE: Apply Config Button

There is just a flag that some changes has been written into the database, not info about specific changes.
