User Story

Every once in a while deprecated sensors / devices / groups are part of a cleanup process and get deleted. A recycle bin for deleted sensors / devices / groups would help recovering the wrongfully deleted.

Details of User Story

When deleting sensors / devices / groups there might be some that get deleted wrongfully. If this does not get noticed by the admin and time passes on the recover by backup possibility is not very attractive as new sensors / devices / groups wouldn't be included in an old backup, so the possibilty to recover items from a recycle bin would be very much appreciated.

Acceptance criteria

  • Items can be restored from a recycle bin
  • Items in a recycle bin can be premanently deleted
