AD Recovery

Cygna Auditor enables you to restore Active Directory objects such as deleted AD users or groups. Empowered with this feature, you can not only detect security issues but also fix them in a fraction of second.

If you are looking for a way to roll back changes, see AD Rollback.

To add events to rollback queue:

  1. On the Cygna Auditor home page, click the Active Directory tile and then drill-down to Recovery.
  2. Select checkboxes next to the objects you want to restore.
  3. Click Recover.
  4. Select the snapshot — Cygna Auditor will restore the object to the state it was at the moment of the snapshot creation. You can use the most recent snapshot or a snapshot taken on a certain date. Review the changes to attributes, clear those you don't want to recover.

    If you selected several objects, they will be reverted to the most recent snapshot.

  5. On the next step, provide administrator credentials and verify them, and then click Recover.
