[ aws . backup ]

describe-recovery-point

Description

Returns metadata associated with a recovery point, including ID, status, encryption, and lifecycle.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-recovery-point
--backup-vault-name <value>
--recovery-point-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--backup-vault-name (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.

--recovery-point-arn (string)

An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that uniquely identifies a recovery point; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:recovery-point:1EB3B5E7-9EB0-435A-A80B-108B488B0D45 .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

RecoveryPointArn -> (string)

An ARN that uniquely identifies a recovery point; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:recovery-point:1EB3B5E7-9EB0-435A-A80B-108B488B0D45 .

BackupVaultName -> (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 Region where they are created. They consist of lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

BackupVaultArn -> (string)

An ARN that uniquely identifies a backup vault; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:vault:aBackupVault .

ResourceArn -> (string)

An ARN that uniquely identifies a saved resource. The format of the ARN depends on the resource type.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of AWS resource to save as a recovery point; for example, an Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume or an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) database.

CreatedBy -> (structure)

Contains identifying information about the creation of a recovery point, including the BackupPlanArn , BackupPlanId , BackupPlanVersion , and BackupRuleId of the backup plan used to create it.

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 .

BackupPlanVersion -> (string)

Version IDs are unique, randomly generated, Unicode, UTF-8 encoded strings that are at most 1,024 bytes long. They cannot be edited.

BackupRuleId -> (string)

Uniquely identifies a rule used to schedule the backup of a selection of resources.

IamRoleArn -> (string)

Specifies the IAM role ARN used to create the target recovery point; for example, arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/S3Access .

Status -> (string)

A status code specifying the state of the recovery point.

Note

A partial status indicates that the recovery point was not successfully re-created and must be retried.

CreationDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time that a recovery point 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.

CompletionDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time that a job to create a recovery point is completed, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of CompletionDate is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.

BackupSizeInBytes -> (long)

The size, in bytes, of a backup.

CalculatedLifecycle -> (structure)

A CalculatedLifecycle object containing DeleteAt and MoveToColdStorageAt timestamps.

MoveToColdStorageAt -> (timestamp)

A timestamp that specifies when to transition a recovery point to cold storage.

DeleteAt -> (timestamp)

A timestamp that specifies when to delete a recovery point.

Lifecycle -> (structure)

The lifecycle defines when a protected resource is transitioned to cold storage and when it expires. AWS Backup transitions and expires backups automatically according to the lifecycle that you define.

Backups that are 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” setting. The “transition to cold after days” setting cannot be changed after a backup has been transitioned to cold.

MoveToColdStorageAfterDays -> (long)

Specifies the number of days after creation that a recovery point is moved to cold storage.

DeleteAfterDays -> (long)

Specifies the number of days after creation that a recovery point is deleted. Must be greater than MoveToColdStorageAfterDays .

EncryptionKeyArn -> (string)

The server-side encryption key used to protect your backups; for example, arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab .

IsEncrypted -> (boolean)

A Boolean value that is returned as TRUE if the specified recovery point is encrypted, or FALSE if the recovery point is not encrypted.

StorageClass -> (string)

Specifies the storage class of the recovery point. Valid values are WARM or COLD .

LastRestoreTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time that a recovery point was last restored, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of LastRestoreTime is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.
