Prior to deleting the MISSION: Auto Number solution, prepare your solution removal checklist. Removing a solution from your environment can affect the existing components and solutions already installed. If you have a staging or test environment, test removing the solution from that organization and test your existing components prior to completing the steps on a production instance.
1. Back up your instance
2. Export your full solution without the sitemap
3. Export a separate sitemap solution
Note: deleting a managed solution from your Dynamics 365 organization will permanently remove and delete any data held in the records contained within the solution. Ensure you have backed up any data that you may later rely upon.
To export your rules, navigate to “Settings” and then select “Auto Number”
Change the view by selecting the down arrow to the right of the default “Active Auto Numbers View” and select “Export Auto Number Records”
