public class BackupRule

The BackupRule type exposes the following members


Public Method BackupRule()


Public Property CompletionWindowMinutes System.Int64

Gets and sets the property CompletionWindowMinutes.

A value in minutes after a backup job is successfully started before it must be completed or it is canceled by AWS Backup. This value is optional.

Public Property CopyActions System.Collections.Generic.List<Amazon.Backup.Model.CopyAction>

Gets and sets the property CopyActions.

An array of CopyAction objects, which contains the details of the copy operation.

Public Property Lifecycle Amazon.Backup.Model.Lifecycle

Gets and sets the property Lifecycle.

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.
