Synopsis

Calls the AWS Backup StartRestoreJob API operation.

Syntax

Start-BAKRestoreJob
-RecoveryPointArn <String>
-IamRoleArn <String>
-IdempotencyToken <String>
-Metadata <Hashtable>
-ResourceType <String>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

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

Parameters

This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-IamRoleArn <String>
The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that Backup uses to create the target recovery point; for example, arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/S3Access.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-IdempotencyToken <String>
A customer-chosen string that you can use to distinguish between otherwise identical calls to StartRestoreJob. Retrying a successful request with the same idempotency token results in a success message with no action taken.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Metadata <Hashtable>
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: The ID of the Amazon EFS file system that is backed up by 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 Amazon Web Services KMS key that is used to encrypt the restored file system. You can specify a key from another Amazon Web Services account provided that key it is properly shared with your account via Amazon Web Services KMS.
  • 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.
  • ItemsToRestore: An array of one to five strings where each string is a file path. Use ItemsToRestore to restore specific files or directories rather than the entire file system. This parameter is optional. For example, "itemsToRestore":"[\"/my.test\"]".
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the RecoveryPointArn parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^RecoveryPointArn' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-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.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ResourceType <String>
Starts a job to restore a recovery point for one of the following resources:
  • Aurora for Amazon Aurora
  • DocumentDB for Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility)
  • DynamoDB for Amazon DynamoDB
  • EBS for Amazon Elastic Block Store
  • EC2 for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud
  • EFS for Amazon Elastic File System
  • FSx for Amazon FSx
  • Neptune for Amazon Neptune
  • RDS for Amazon Relational Database Service
  • Storage Gateway for Storage Gateway
  • S3 for Amazon S3
  • VirtualMachine for virtual machines
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'RestoreJobId'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.Backup.Model.StartRestoreJobResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.Backup.Model.StartRestoreJobResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesStoredCredentials, AWSProfileName
-Region <Object>
The system name of an AWS region or an AWSRegion instance. This governs the endpoint that will be used when calling service operations. Note that the AWS resources referenced in a call are usually region-specific.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesRegionToCall
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesSK, SecretAccessKey
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required?False

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a System.String object. The service call response (type Amazon.Backup.Model.StartRestoreJobResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
