    Will this have the same ID in the website address as the original item? Is there a way to restore the item to have the same ID?

    Hi Denise,

    Since this process creates a copy of the original archived item, the ID number of the item will change. There is currently no way to restore something from the Archive to have the same ID as it did previously since it is a copy.

    If you would like a way to retain the same ID, you can submit an Enhancement Request.

    Thank you!
