Backing up and restoring the analytics database

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 is performed on demand by deploying a backup CR. You can deploy a restore CR to start the restoration of a previously generated backup.

Note: On a v10.0.5 API Connect deployment, you can restore only analytics backups that were taken from a v10.0.5 analytics deployment. You cannot restore analytics backups that were taken from a deployment that was on v10.0.4 or an earlier release.
