Restoring the PostgreSQL cluster

To restore the PostgreSQL cluster, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the OpenShift cluster using oc login command, and switch to <foundational-services> project.

     oc login --token=<token> --server=<server-url>
     oc project <your-foundational-services-namespace>
  2. Run the following command:

     oc annotate postgrescluster instrumentationdb --overwrite

    After you run the command the database is restored with the latest backup.

  3. Wait until the database pods are running.
