We are currently working on a technical design for upgrading from RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.0.2 P09 to 7.1. We currently are configured for the Software Bundle with remote customer-supplied database.
For a Virtual application (OVA) with customer-supplied database, what is the back out (rollback) option when implementing application patches in RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle Version 7.1 environment?
RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle does not provide rollback functionality to the previous version. However, RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle also provides a backup and restore scripts below:
The backup procedure applies only to hardware appliance, software bundle, and virtual application (OVA) deployments. The backup procedure also backs up keystore files in following directory:
For RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle version 5.5 or 6.x: /home/oracle/wildfly-<wildfly-version>/server/default/deploy/keystore
You can restore a product version only on a machine that has the same version installed. You must also use a database dump from the same version to restore the database data and associated KEK and keystore files.

Alternatively, you can roll back to a previous version by reinstalling RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.1.0 GA version using an .ova file (for example, RSA_IGL.x86_64-<VersionNumber>.ova) and applying the desired (previous patch) to which you need to roll back.
