[ aws . backup ]

put-backup-vault-lock-configuration

Description

Applies Backup Vault Lock to a backup vault, preventing attempts to delete any recovery point stored in or created in a backup vault. Vault Lock also prevents attempts to update the lifecycle policy that controls the retention period of any recovery point currently stored in a backup vault. If specified, Vault Lock enforces a minimum and maximum retention period for future backup and copy jobs that target a backup vault.

Note

Backup Vault Lock has yet to receive a third-party assessment for SEC 17a-4(f) and CFTC.

Synopsis

  put-backup-vault-lock-configuration
--backup-vault-name <value>
[--min-retention-days <value>]
[--max-retention-days <value>]
[--changeable-for-days <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--backup-vault-name (string)

The Backup Vault Lock configuration that specifies the name of the backup vault it protects.

--min-retention-days (long)

The Backup Vault Lock configuration that specifies the minimum retention period that the vault retains its recovery points. This setting can be useful if, for example, your organization's policies require you to retain certain data for at least seven years (2555 days).

If this parameter is not specified, Vault Lock will not enforce a minimum retention period.

If this parameter is specified, any backup or copy job to the vault must have a lifecycle policy with a retention period equal to or longer than the minimum retention period. If the job's retention period is shorter than that minimum retention period, then the vault fails that backup or copy job, and you should either modify your lifecycle settings or use a different vault. Recovery points already saved in the vault prior to Vault Lock are not affected.

--max-retention-days (long)

The Backup Vault Lock configuration that specifies the maximum retention period that the vault retains its recovery points. This setting can be useful if, for example, your organization's policies require you to destroy certain data after retaining it for four years (1460 days).

If this parameter is not included, Vault Lock does not enforce a maximum retention period on the recovery points in the vault. If this parameter is included without a value, Vault Lock will not enforce a maximum retention period.

If this parameter is specified, any backup or copy job to the vault must have a lifecycle policy with a retention period equal to or shorter than the maximum retention period. If the job's retention period is longer than that maximum retention period, then the vault fails the backup or copy job, and you should either modify your lifecycle settings or use a different vault. Recovery points already saved in the vault prior to Vault Lock are not affected.

--changeable-for-days (long)

The Backup Vault Lock configuration that specifies the number of days before the lock date. For example, setting ChangeableForDays to 30 on Jan. 1, 2022 at 8pm UTC will set the lock date to Jan. 31, 2022 at 8pm UTC.

Backup enforces a 72-hour cooling-off period before Vault Lock takes effect and becomes immutable. Therefore, you must set ChangeableForDays to 3 or greater.

Before the lock date, you can delete Vault Lock from the vault using DeleteBackupVaultLockConfiguration or change the Vault Lock configuration using PutBackupVaultLockConfiguration . On and after the lock date, the Vault Lock becomes immutable and cannot be changed or deleted.

If this parameter is not specified, you can delete Vault Lock from the vault using DeleteBackupVaultLockConfiguration or change the Vault Lock configuration using PutBackupVaultLockConfiguration at any time.

--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.
