🟑 How Did I Miss That?

Devtoberfest

As a follow up to the popular session from @MichelleMoudy  last year's "How did I not see that?" We will have another great session for #FunFriday where the Developer Advocates come together to share stories of times where we were involved in a project, a go-live, a push to production, anything that really had an impact on others and we made a mistake and learned from that mistake. 

It's all part of growing and we want to have fun sharing what it is that made us who we are.  Please join us in the chat and comment, ask questions and even share your own stories if you would like.

Raise your hand if you haven't ever executed a batch-input in production that was supposed to modify something but... deleted everything!

Don't worry, it wasn't important... it was just data from infotype 8, only 2 days to pay the payroll; nothing that a backup and a few hours of work couldn't solve πŸ˜‰

In the 1st year of being a developer and barely understanding the power of unix commands, I was asked to remove older files from certain folders in the filesystem and instead removed entire folders... thanks to the Basis team, they had a backup of the filesystem and directories. 

More like a "how did I MESS that?" moment.πŸ˜…

I also had the issue with deleting a folder on the unix machine. I was checking some issue with a custom PI adapter that was using some temporary files and I removed everything in the folder. I was lucky I was in the temp folder and anywhere more relevant

Once, while I was fixing a computer I had, I changed some parts and then tried to turn the computer on, but nothing happenedβ€”no beeps, nothing. I checked and saw it was plugged into the power stabilizer. I thought I had broken something. I reverted all the parts back to their original state and was nearing my wits' end when I realized that the power stabilizer wasn't plugged into the outlet. I almost went nuts because I had just lost an hour there.

 Deleted the wrong branch when I first started with Git. Lost my work because I hadn't merged 'dev' into 'main'.

I too encountered issues during my initial days of OData development, where I missed some of the Gateway (OData) objects/artifacts sequencing when moving to production.
