Recycle bin


The Recycle bin function is available to administrators and is found in the left-hand side pane, or on the top right toolbar depending on the chosen orientation, under Administration. The recycle bin holds deleted process instances, dashboard pages and process designs. Deleted items are held for 30 days and are permanently deleted after this time.

How to get started

To view items in the Recycle bin:

  1. Click on Administration in the left-hand side pane and then click on Recycle bin.

  2. Search for an item by typing in key words into the Search items box for example ‘Office’.

  3. You can view existing deleted items in the Recycle bin main view.

    Deleted items are listed by:

    • Item type - this is the type of deleted item, for example a widget, process instance, datasource or page.
    • Item details - the name of the deleted item, for example the name of a process instance and the unique name (ID) for that process
    • Deleted date - the date the item was deleted
    • Deleted by - the name of the user who deleted the item.

    In the example above there is one process design, four dashboard pages and three process instances.

  4. To restore an item click on the Restore item button Restore recycle bin button beside the item name.

  5. When you click on the button you will get a pop-up confirmation asking you to confirm that you want to restore that item.
