Create a backup

Once you’ve created any backup rules and schedule policies you want, you can use them to create a backup.

  1. From the home page, select the Backup the cluster you want to back up:

    Select cluster

  2. Select the namespaces and apply label selectors to filter the resources you want to back up:

    Select namespaces and labels


    • To back up all namespaces, choose Select All
    • To back up all namespaces and the namespaces created after you created this backup, choose Select All and then select Include any new namespaces created
  3. Select the Backup button:

    Select create backup

  4. From the dialog box, specify the following:

    • Backup name: the name of the backup you want displayed in the PX-Backup UI
    • Backup location: which bucket you want to store your backups onto
    • Now or On a schedule: run the backup immediately or choose a schedule policy to associate with this backup
    • Pre-exec rule: any rules you want to execute before the backup runs
    • Post-exec rule: any rules you want to execute after the backup runs
    • Backup labels: any labels you want to attach to the backup once it’s created

    Populate backup fields

Once you’ve created your backup, you can monitor its status.
