The rewind feature allows you to view data that corresponds to dates and times in the past and compare it to data for a different date and time. You can rewind the data for some or all portlets on a portal page to a previous point in time, such as when a job failed. Rewinding portlet data is useful for identifying and resolving issues.

You can rewind data as far back as data is available. The rewind feature is not available for portlets that have portlet-specific methods for reviewing data over time. The rewind feature works uniquely in the Query Spotlight portlet. See the Query Spotlight topics for further details.

Using the rewind toolbar, you can enter a specific date and time as well as scroll through the data in increments of seconds, minutes, hours, or days. All portlets on the page that are participating in rewind activities display data that corresponds to the selected rewind date and time each time a selection is made.

If portlet data can be rewound, appears in the portlet frame.

Permission to use the rewind feature is granted to individual users based on their role and portlet access. If the rewind toolbar does not appear on the portal page, you are not authorized to use the feature. If does not appear in the portlet frame, the rewind feature is not available for that portlet.
