Schedule the Automatic Backups
Endpoint Cloud will automatically backup the devices that use a Policy. The first backup takes place approximately 10 minutes after a device is first activated and after that, the backups run to a regular schedule.
You can set the schedule in the Backup & Restore settings for a Policy.
Set the Schedule for Automatic Backups
- Display the Policy Editor for the Policy that you want to change (click Policies and then click on the Policy).
The Policy Editor is displayed automatically when you create a new Policy.
- Click the Backup & Restore tab.
- Use the Run device backups every option to choose how often the automatic backups will take place. You can choose:
- 1 hour
- 2 Hours
- 4 Hours
- 8 Hours
- Click Save or Save and Close to confirm.
Let's say you have a 'Finance' policy and you have set it to backup every 2 hours. You also have a 'Finance' team and you have assigned the 'Finance' policy to the team.
The devices in the Finance team will have their data backed up automatically every 2 hours (as that is the schedule defined in the policy used by their team).
For devices in other teams, the backup schedule could be different, as their teams may use a different policy that is set to backup at a different time, such as every 8 hours.
