Revert back to older application version in LifeTime

On our radar

Hello Team,

Thank you for the new update in outystems, I saw now we can search espace in the lifetime while deployment and also we can see all applications & difference applications filters, which is very good functionality given by outsystems. I have an idea to make it more better and simple. I want outsystems to provide previous version deployment functionality in lifetime. For example - 

Let assume application name ABC had version 1.54 in dev and  1.50 in QA

If developer deploy version 1.54 from dev to QA but some thing went wrong or he want to revert back all the changes and make QA 1.50 again, then he can..

This is my Idea to make lifetime deployment more better and flexible to developers.

Hello team,

Yes, this idea is very much needed. As sometimes we need to revert back the changes which are already deployed, but unable to revert the same using lifetime.

For example, if I have 3 servers and I am deploying modules from 2nd server to 3rd server. Later I realized there are some issues in 3rd server and it needs to revert back to older version.  In this case, this idea will help us.

Hi Rajat, 

Thanks for your recognition, the team appreciates it!

Thanks for sharing the idea, I will rename it so that we can better understand the content.

On our radar


I’m marking this as “on our radar” since we think this is a good idea.

This isn’t currently on our roadmap but we’ll keep an eye here if this idea continues to grow and get comments from all of you.  

Hi Joao,

Thank you for your reply. It's really needed by all developers.

Hi Joao,

This idea is really good and it will help all of us. Please can you implement this because my Team also facing this issue.



This would be very useful, especially for change management. ie. if you deploy into production, and something goes wrong (perhaps because of a data issue you didn't expect in production), you can't easily rollback.

Right Nicolaas.. I agreed

it should be implemented ASAP, we are facing the same issue in the lifetime.

@Joao - Any update on this?

This idea is very good, infact will be very useful. I had faced an issue, once when i deployed to Prod and something went wrong with the current build, so I had published all the previous version espaces from Service center which is very time consuming . 

So if the above idea is implemented, then it will be really very helpful in terms of time and complexity.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your feedback, please keep doing it. It is very important for us to understand your reality on this so that we can better understand the investment here.

This is not on our roadmap, but we are keeping this on top of our radar so please let us know your feedback. 

Meanwhile, and in order to open the discussion, there is an article related to this from one of our MVPs and product documentation on how to Rollback to a Previous Version.

Please keep sharing your feedback.

Hi Joao,

This feature is very imp and needed by everyone. I saw documentation and that process is from service center. We are following that approach since Outsystems 9 but when Outsystems is growing so fast and demand is high then we also need to upgarde this features to fulfill everyone need. I really appreciate if you consider this feature in your list.
