Backup Dynamo Table

To build a snapshot job for an RDS instance you create a new job by clicking the plus-sign on the toolbar.

Backing up by selecting an instance volume

Select the “Instance” radio button to create a backup by choosing the Dynamo Table from the combo-box.

You can define the retention period for your backups by selecting the number of days in the “Delete after x days” combo box. AutomatiCloud names all the snapshots it creates with an identifier (DAIYL|WEEKLY|MONTHLY) tag and a datatime stamp. The name is used for the deletion of backups that are older as the configured rentention period.

AutomatiCloud will only delete backups that have a matching name. It will never delete snapshots not created by itself.

The cleanup procedure is an integrated part of the snapshot job. This means that a weekly backup job will only look once a week for outdated snapshot and delete them when needed.

Backing up by TAG

Alternatively you can create a job that is creating one or multiple backups for all tables that have a certain tag associated.

Enter the name of the tag in the “tag” field. Example “MyTag”

Open AWS Console and tag all tables you want to back up with a key named “MyTag”.

Now you can set up the schedule for your backup job. Tick the checkbox for every day and enter the time to run your job.
