Creating change requests as rollbacks
You should create a back-out plan for restoring the IT infrastructure to its initial situation. If the actions associated with a change request need to be reversed, support staff and managers can create a change request for the system that needs to be rolled back. This means that impacted systems need to be restored to their previous status before the change request was implemented.
To identify a change request as a rollback
- Create a new change request.
- Create a related task to implement the rollback for this change request.
For more information, see Implement stage - Working with tasks.
