Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • BackupPlanDocument (dict) –

      Returns the body of a backup plan based on the target template, including the name, rules, and backup vault of the plan.

      • BackupPlanName (string) –

        The display name of a backup plan. Must contain 1 to 50 alphanumeric or ‘-_.’ characters.

      • Rules (list) –

        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) –

            A display name for a backup rule. Must contain 1 to 50 alphanumeric or ‘-_.’ characters.

          • TargetBackupVaultName (string) –

            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 Amazon Web Services Region where they are created. They consist of lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

          • ScheduleExpression (string) –

            A cron expression in UTC specifying when Backup initiates a backup job. For more information about Amazon Web Services cron expressions, see Schedule Expressions for Rules in the Amazon CloudWatch Events User Guide.. Two examples of Amazon Web Services cron expressions are 15 * ? * * * (take a backup every hour at 15 minutes past the hour) and 0 12 * * ? * (take a backup every day at 12 noon UTC). For a table of examples, click the preceding link and scroll down the page.

          • StartWindowMinutes (integer) –

            A value in minutes after a backup is scheduled before a job will be canceled if it doesn’t start successfully. This value is optional. If this value is included, it must be at least 60 minutes to avoid errors.

            During the start window, the backup job status remains in CREATED status until it has successfully begun or until the start window time has run out. If within the start window time Backup receives an error that allows the job to be retried, Backup will automatically retry to begin the job at least every 10 minutes until the backup successfully begins (the job status changes to RUNNING) or until the job status changes to EXPIRED (which is expected to occur when the start window time is over).

          • CompletionWindowMinutes (integer) –

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

          • Lifecycle (dict) –

            The lifecycle defines when a protected resource is transitioned to cold storage and when it expires. 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 “retention” 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.

            Resource types that are able to be transitioned to cold storage are listed in the “Lifecycle to cold storage” section of the Feature availability by resource table. Backup ignores this expression for other resource types.

            • 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 90 days plus MoveToColdStorageAfterDays.

          • RecoveryPointTags (dict) –

            An array of key-value pair strings that are assigned to resources that are associated with this rule when restored from backup.

            • (string) –

              • (string) –

          • RuleId (string) –

            Uniquely identifies a rule that is used to schedule the backup of a selection of resources.

          • CopyActions (list) –

            An array of CopyAction objects, which contains the details of the copy operation.

            • (dict) –

              The details of the copy operation.

              • Lifecycle (dict) –

                Contains an array of Transition objects specifying how long in days before a recovery point transitions to cold storage or is deleted.

                Backups transitioned to cold storage must be stored in cold storage for a minimum of 90 days. Therefore, on the console, the “retention” 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.

                Resource types that are able to be transitioned to cold storage are listed in the “Lifecycle to cold storage” section of the Feature availability by resource table. Backup ignores this expression for other resource types.

                • 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 90 days plus MoveToColdStorageAfterDays.

              • DestinationBackupVaultArn (string) –

                An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that uniquely identifies the destination backup vault for the copied backup. For example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:vault:aBackupVault.

          • EnableContinuousBackup (boolean) –

            Specifies whether Backup creates continuous backups. True causes Backup to create continuous backups capable of point-in-time restore (PITR). False (or not specified) causes Backup to create snapshot backups.

          • ScheduleExpressionTimezone (string) –

            This is the timezone in which the schedule expression is set. By default, ScheduleExpressions are in UTC. You can modify this to a specified timezone.

      • AdvancedBackupSettings (list) –

        Contains a list of BackupOptions for each resource type.

        • (dict) –

          A list of backup options for each resource type.

          • ResourceType (string) –

            Specifies an object containing resource type and backup options. The only supported resource type is Amazon EC2 instances with Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS). For a CloudFormation example, see the sample CloudFormation template to enable Windows VSS in the Backup User Guide.

            Valid values: EC2.

          • BackupOptions (dict) –

            Specifies the backup option for a selected resource. This option is only available for Windows VSS backup jobs.

            Valid values:

            Set to "WindowsVSS":"enabled" to enable the WindowsVSS backup option and create a Windows VSS backup.

            Set to "WindowsVSS":"disabled" to create a regular backup. The WindowsVSS option is not enabled by default.

            If you specify an invalid option, you get an InvalidParameterValueException exception.

            For more information about Windows VSS backups, see Creating a VSS-Enabled Windows Backup.
