Reverting Back To Previous Assignment

I assigned a temporary policy to an endpoint and would like to revert back to the original policy. Editing "assignment" for that policy gives me two choices: 1. Remove assignment and 2. New assignment. Which one of these options would allow me to select the original policy that I had seamlessly.

Re: Reverting Back To Previous Assignment

Hello User80967331,
Could you help us with some more details :

ePO Version, Policy for which Point product and the screen where you are seeing these options, is it the Policy Assignment screen?

Ideally breaking the inheritance and applying the old policy should do the job

ePO 5.9. 

(endpoint) --> actions --> view assigned policies --> Endpoint Security Firewall --> options --> edit assignment.

Once I click on edit assignment, my options are remove assignment or new assignment.

I too was expecting to see "break inheritance."

In case you still don't see the option to break inheritance, switch to a different browser

Adding to Avi.
If you are using ePO 5.10 in that case please make sure that you are using ePO 5.10 Update 4.

Try to change the browser.

Try to see whether the ENS extensions are running or not.

If need, Also please try to upgrade the extensions as well.

Re: Reverting Back To Previous Assignment

Hello,

Please select that endpoint in System Tree.

After that please go to the Agent>Edit/Modify Policies on Single Systems>Select the Point product and click on edit assignments and select Break inheritance and assign the policy and settings below after that from drop down in front of Assigned Policy select the previous assigned policy and save it.

Once the policy get saved please send a wake-up agent call to the endpoint and changes will get revert.

Also if the above reply is not helping you in that case please let me know the steps you are following or please provide any screenshots.

Re: Reverting Back To Previous Assignment

All you need to do is change the break inheritance back to my org or whatever group it was set to and it will revert it back to your original assignment.
