Reset Process Flow

Reset Process Flow

You can perform a reset operation that truncates tables or a reset operation that does not truncate tables.
Perform a reset with the truncate tables option when you own the target schema or when you do not share the data. By default, TDM disables the constraints and indexes during the reset. The downtime that this causes does not impact the work of other users because you do not share the tables.
Do not truncate tables if you share the table data and you need to reset a part of the data. You might delete data that other users need.
The following image indicates the steps that a reset operation goes through:
The reset process figure demonstrates the steps that the reset process goes through depending on the options that you select. It contains the tasks that the reset performs if you choose to perform a reset that truncates tables. It also contains the steps that the reset performs if you use the default settings.
The image does not include tasks performed during backup.
