If you cannot access the root level in Zope 2 via the browser but you are able to use the debug console you have enough to undo transactions.
Start the debug console:
$ bin/zinstance debug
List the transaction descriptions, user names and ids of the last 10 transactions:
>>> from pprint import pprint >>> pprint(app._p_jar.db().undoInfo(0, 10))
(0 is the youngest transaction, the first one to show)
Undo some transactions:
>>> import transaction >>> transaction.get().note(u"Undo transactions: ...") >>> app._p_jar.db().undoMultiple([id1, id2]) >>> transaction.commit()
(id1, id2 have to be the actual id strings from the transaction listing.)
- Use a sorted list of transaction ids, start with the id of the youngest transaction you want to undo.
- You cannot undo transactions those objects were changed again later without undoing those transactions, too.
- The actual undo is executed when calling
transaction.commit(). (This might take some time to execute.)
- You can check the result of your undo using the transaction log as undo only creates an inverse transaction.
