Backup

Table of Contents

Client

class Backup.Client

A low-level client representing AWS Backup:

client = session.create_client('backup')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
create_backup_plan(**kwargs)

Backup plans are documents that contain information that AWS Backup uses to schedule tasks that create recovery points of resources.

If you call CreateBackupPlan with a plan that already exists, the existing backupPlanId is returned.

Parameters
  • BackupPlan (dict) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies the body of a backup plan. Includes a BackupPlanName and one or more sets of Rules .

    • BackupPlanName (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The display name of a backup plan.

    • Rules (list) -- [REQUIRED]

      An array of BackupRule objects, each of which specifies a scheduled task that is used to back up a selection of resources.

      • (dict) --

        Specifies a scheduled task used to back up a selection of resources.

        • RuleName (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          >An optional display name for a backup rule.

        • TargetBackupVaultName (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The name of a logical container where backups are stored. Backup vaults are identified by names that are unique to the account used to create them and the AWS Region where they are created. They consist of lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

        • ScheduleExpression (string) --

          A CRON expression specifying when AWS Backup initiates a backup job.

        • StartWindowMinutes (integer) --

          The amount of time in minutes before beginning a backup.

        • CompletionWindowMinutes (integer) --

          The amount of time AWS Backup attempts a backup before canceling the job and returning an error.

        • Lifecycle (dict) --

          The lifecycle defines when a protected resource is transitioned to cold storage and when it expires. AWS Backup will transition and expire backups automatically according to the lifecycle that you define.

          Backups transitioned to cold storage must be stored in cold storage for a minimum of 90 days. Therefore, the “expire after days” setting must be 90 days greater than the “transition to cold after days”. The “transition to cold after days” setting cannot be changed after a backup has been transitioned to cold.

          • MoveToColdStorageAfterDays (integer) --

            Specifies the number of days after creation that a recovery point is moved to cold storage.

          • DeleteAfterDays (integer) --

            Specifies the number of days after creation that a recovery point is deleted. Must be greater than MoveToColdStorageAfterDays .

        • RecoveryPointTags (dict) --

          To help organize your resources, you can assign your own metadata to the resources that you create. Each tag is a key-value pair.

          • (string) --
            • (string) --
  • BackupPlanTags (dict) --

    To help organize your resources, you can assign your own metadata to the resources that you create. Each tag is a key-value pair. The specified tags are assigned to all backups created with this plan.

    • (string) --
      • (string) --
  • CreatorRequestId (string) -- Identifies the request and allows failed requests to be retried without the risk of executing the operation twice. If the request includes a CreatorRequestId that matches an existing backup plan, that plan is returned. This parameter is optional.

    'BackupPlanId': 'string',
    'BackupPlanArn': 'string',
    'CreationDate': datetime(2015, 1, 1),
    'VersionId': 'string'
}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • BackupPlanId (string) --

      Uniquely identifies a backup plan.

    • BackupPlanArn (string) --

      An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that uniquely identifies a backup plan; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:plan:8F81F553-3A74-4A3F-B93D-B3360DC80C50 .

    • CreationDate (datetime) --

      The date and time that a backup plan is created, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of CreationDate is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.

    • VersionId (string) --

      Unique, randomly generated, Unicode, UTF-8 encoded strings that are at most 1024 bytes long. They cannot be edited.

create_backup_selection(**kwargs)

Creates a JSON document that specifies a set of resources to assign to a backup plan. Resources can be included by specifying patterns for a ListOfTags and selected Resources .

For example, consider the following patterns:

  • Resources: "arn:aws:ec2:region:account-id:volume/volume-id"
  • ConditionKey:"department" ConditionValue:"finance" ConditionType:"StringEquals"
  • ConditionKey:"importance" ConditionValue:"critical" ConditionType:"StringEquals"

Using these patterns would back up all Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes that are tagged as "department=finance" , "importance=critical" , in addition to an EBS volume with the specified volume Id.

Resources and conditions are additive in that all resources that match the pattern are selected. This shouldn't be confused with a logical AND, where all conditions must match. The matching patterns are logically 'put together using the OR operator. In other words, all patterns that match are selected for backup.

            A value in minutes after a backup job is successfully started before it must be completed or it is canceled by AWS Backup. This value is optional.

          • Lifecycle (dict) --

            The lifecycle defines when a protected resource is transitioned to cold storage and when it expires. AWS Backup transitions and expires backups automatically according to the lifecycle that you define.

            Backups transitioned to cold storage must be stored in cold storage for a minimum of 90 days. Therefore, the “expire after days” setting must be 90 days greater than the “transition to cold after days” setting. The “transition to cold after days” setting cannot be changed after a backup has been transitioned to cold.

            • MoveToColdStorageAfterDays (integer) --

              Specifies the number of days after creation that a recovery point is moved to cold storage.

  • IdempotencyToken (string) -- A customer chosen string that can be used to distinguish between calls to StartBackupJob . Idempotency tokens time out after one hour. Therefore, if you call StartBackupJob multiple times with the same idempotency token within one hour, AWS Backup recognizes that you are requesting only one backup job and initiates only one. If you change the idempotency token for each call, AWS Backup recognizes that you are requesting to start multiple backups.

    Backups transitioned to cold storage must be stored in cold storage for a minimum of 90 days. Therefore, the “expire after days” setting must be 90 days greater than the “transition to cold after days” setting. The “transition to cold after days” setting cannot be changed after a backup has been transitioned to cold.

    • MoveToColdStorageAfterDays (integer) --

      Specifies the number of days after creation that a recovery point is moved to cold storage.

    • CreationDate (datetime) --

      The date and time that a backup job is started, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of CreationDate is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.

start_restore_job(**kwargs)
