Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

AWS Backup is a unified backup service designed to protect AWS services and their associated data. AWS Backup simplifies the creation, migration, restoration, and deletion of backups, while also providing reporting and auditing.

Sending a Request Using Backup

var backup = new AWS.Backup();
backup.createBackupPlan(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the Backup object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var backup = new AWS.Backup({apiVersion: '2018-11-15'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the backup service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  backup: '2018-11-15',
  // other service API versions
};

var backup = new AWS.Backup();

    The endpoint URI to send requests to. The default endpoint is built from the configured region. The endpoint should be a string like 'https://{service}.{region}.amazonaws.com'.

  • accessKeyId (String)

    your AWS access key ID.

  • secretAccessKey (String)

    your AWS secret access key.

  • sessionToken (AWS.Credentials)

    the optional AWS session token to sign requests with.

  • credentials (AWS.Credentials)

    the AWS credentials to sign requests with. You can either specify this object, or specify the accessKeyId and secretAccessKey options directly.

  • credentialProvider (AWS.CredentialProviderChain)

    the provider chain used to resolve credentials if no static credentials property is set.

  • region (String)

    the region to send service requests to. See AWS.Backup.region for more information.

    the maximum amount of redirects to follow with a request. See AWS.Backup.maxRedirects for more information.

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • BackupPlan — (map)

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

        • RuleNamerequired — (String)

          >An optional display name for a backup rule.

        • TargetBackupVaultNamerequired — (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 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)

        • CompletionWindowMinutes — (Integer)

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

        • Lifecycle — (map)

          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 — (map<String>)

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

    • BackupPlanTags — (map<String>)

      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.

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • 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 — (Date)

        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.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createBackupSelection(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

    • 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.

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.
