Updating a backup plan - AWS Backup

Updating a backup plan

After creating a backup plan, you can edit the plan—for example, you can add tags, or you can add, edit, or delete backup rules. Any changes that you make to a backup plan have no effect on existing backups created by the backup plan. The changes apply only to backups that are created in the future.

For example, when you update the retention period in a backup rule, the retention period of backups created before you made the update remain the same. Any backups that are created by that rule going forward reflect the updated retention period.

To edit a backup plan using the AWS Backup console

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

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Backup plans.

  3. Choose a backup rule and choose Edit.

  4. In the backup rule, change the settings that you want, and then choose Save.
