Viewing a list of backups - AWS Backup

Viewing a list of backups

You can view a list of your backups using the AWS Backup console or programmatically.

Listing backups by protected resource in the console

Follow these steps to view a list of backups of a particular resource on the AWS Backup console.

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console, and open the AWS Backup console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/backup.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Protected resources.

  3. Choose a protected resource in the list to view the list of backups. Only resources that have been backed up by AWS Backup are listed under Protected resources.

You can view all the backups for the resource, even the ones that were not created by AWS Backup. From this view, you can also choose a backup and restore it.

Listing backups by backup vault in the console

Follow these steps to view a list of backups organized in a backup vault.

  1. Open the AWS Backup console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/backup.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Backup vaults.

  3. In the Backups section, view the list of all the backups organized in this backup vault. In this view, you can sort backups by any of the column headers (including status), as well as select a backup to restore it, edit it, or delete it.

Listing backups programmatically

You can list backups programmatically using the ListRecoveryPoint API operations:

For example, the following AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) command lists all your backups with the EXPIRED status:

aws backup list-recovery-points-by-backup-vault \ --backup-vault-name sample-vault \ --query 'RecoveryPoints[?Status == `EXPIRED`]'
