We have an application in development at the moment. We are using powershell scripts to create the lists as this application may be deployed in multiple places. A change was needed to a list so we deleted and recreated the list with the script, but I forgot (doh!) that I had developed two quite meaty workflows on the list before it was deleted.
Does anyone know if there is a way to get them back? where do they go? are they gone forever? Do I need to start all over again?
Thanks in advance, a very hopeful Cassy
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sorry i'm not able to pre-test this suggestion before-hand, but it looks promising.
<Association ListID=and replace the current GUID with the GUID of the newly created List.
The deleted list isn't in the Recycling Bin by chance is it? If it is you might be able to restore it. The other alt is maybe you have a nightly backup that you could restore from (roll back).
I am excited to try this and so super hopeful it might work, thanks Andrew Glasser! I will most definitely keep you posted. I will try and sort it tonight when I get some quiet time to concentrate on it.
ah sorry Mike M I was being daft, I was in the wrong non-admin account when I looked in the recycle bin. Lo and behold it was there, restored and there are my workflows
Thank you so much!
Hi Andrew Glasser
Before I realised I was in with the wrong account to find the list in the recycle bin, we tried what you suggested. it was all going well until we saved the update of the list in the workflow:
the web file properties box popped up to which we clicked OK, then we had very unhelpful alert! that's as far as we got. I know I don't need this anymore as I was able to restore from the recycle bin, but thought you might like to see what happened from your suggestion.
Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to help me out, I was really panicking last night!
