Backing up and restoring the analytics database on VMware

The IBM® API Connect Analytics database can be backed up and restored from an S3 repository. S3 compatible object storage is required; for example, IBM Cloud Object Storage.

About this task

Before you can initiate a backup or restore operation, you must update the Analytics CR (custom resource) to configure your settings. Generating a backup for Analytics can be performed on a scheduled basis or manually as needed. You can deploy a restore CR to start the restoration of a previously generated backup. To work with CRs, you need to log in to the virtual machine with an SSH tool.
