update-recovery-point-lifecycle

Description

Sets the transition lifecycle of a recovery point.

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 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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  update-recovery-point-lifecycle
--backup-vault-name <value>
--recovery-point-arn <value>
[--lifecycle <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 .

--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 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.

Shorthand Syntax:

MoveToColdStorageAfterDays=long,DeleteAfterDays=long

JSON Syntax:

{
  "MoveToColdStorageAfterDays": long,
  "DeleteAfterDays": long
}

--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

BackupVaultArn -> (string)

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

RecoveryPointArn -> (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 .

Lifecycle -> (structure)

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 .

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.
