ApiOmat uses a MongoDB for storing configuration and application data. Several backup machanisms can be used, depending on load, DB setup and backup hardware.

Using the restore module

The Restore Module backups each application data once a day, if configured during setup. All application databases are backed up using mongodump and saved in a directory provided in yambas.conf.

Each app administrator has the independent option to restore the backup from the last ten days. While this is straightforward, the backup capability is limited; it neither supports point in time recovery, nor does it backup the whole Apiomat configuration.

The guide Configure Backup / Restore Functionality contains further details on how to set up the restore module.

Other mongo related methods

MongoDB has several backup methods on board for dumping databases or oplogs, to perform point in time recovery. For further infomation please refer to the following article here.
