Release Roll Back Checklist

The Release Roll Back Checklist is a formalized process designed to ensure that any changes made to the production environment are tested, validated, and approved prior to being released. It includes steps such as verifying the build and deployment, checking system performance and availability, and ensuring data integrity. The checklist also includes testing in a non-production environment, validating the change, and ensuring that all stakeholders are informed of the change. The checklist ensures that any changes are thoroughly tested, documented, and approved before being released into the production environment, thus minimizing any potential risks.
