Restore a Database

You can restore a database cluster in-place from a previous snapshot.

List available snapshots of a cluster

To restore from a snapshot you will need to provide a snapshot ID. You can request a list of all available snapshots:
Our chosen clusterId is: cc54e0f2-5e49-42bf-97e8-089c2eff0264

Request

curl --include \
--user "[email protected]:Mb2.r5oHf-0t" \

Restore from backup in-place

You can now create a restore job for the chosen cluster. Your database will not be available during the restore operation. In order to successfully create a restore job, no other active restore job must exist.
Note: To restore a cluster in-place you can only use snapshots from that cluster.
Note: The cluster will have a BUSY state and must not receive connections.
