[ aws . backup ]

start-restore-job

Description

Recovers the saved resource identified by an Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

If the resource ARN is included in the request, then the last complete backup of that resource is recovered. If the ARN of a recovery point is supplied, then that recovery point is restored.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--recovery-point-arn (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 .

--metadata (map)

A set of metadata key-value pairs. Contains information, such as a resource name, required to restore a recovery point.

You can get configuration metadata about a resource at the time it was backed up by calling GetRecoveryPointRestoreMetadata . However, values in addition to those provided by GetRecoveryPointRestoreMetadata might be required to restore a resource. For example, you might need to provide a new resource name if the original already exists.

You need to specify specific metadata to restore an Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) instance:

  • file-system-id : ID of the Amazon EFS file system that is backed up by AWS Backup. Returned in GetRecoveryPointRestoreMetadata .
  • Encrypted : A Boolean value that, if true, specifies that the file system is encrypted. If KmsKeyId is specified, Encrypted must be set to true .
  • KmsKeyId : Specifies the AWS KMS key that is used to encrypt the restored file system.
  • PerformanceMode : Specifies the throughput mode of the file system.
  • CreationToken : A user-supplied value that ensures the uniqueness (idempotency) of the request.
  • newFileSystem : A Boolean value that, if true, specifies that the recovery point is restored to a new Amazon EFS file system.

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--iam-role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that AWS Backup uses to create the target recovery point; for example, arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/S3Access .

--idempotency-token (string)

A customer chosen string that can be used to distinguish between calls to StartRestoreJob .

--resource-type (string)

Starts a job to restore a recovery point for one of the following resources:

  • EBS for Amazon Elastic Block Store
  • Storage Gateway for AWS Storage Gateway
  • RDS for Amazon Relational Database Service
  • DDB for Amazon DynamoDB
  • EFS for Amazon Elastic File System

--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

RestoreJobId -> (string)

Uniquely identifies the job that restores a recovery point.
