  2. Click Backup & Restore > Overview.
  3. Use any of the following methods to generate the YAML.
    Option Description

    1. In the step 1: Connect your clusters (optional) section, click Connect clusters.
    2. From the drop-down list, select Automate deployment. The connect your cluster > Automate deployment window appears.
    3. Select the storage class to use on the spoke where you want to run the YAML.
    4. Click Generate. The YAML starts to generate.

    1. Click Backup & Restore > Environment.
      In the Environment page, you can see the hub cluster. In the Cluster table, you can see a list of spokes connected.
