Backups API

Written by Anders Bälter

List, download, create and restore from backups through our fresh Backups API.

Lots of customers want to be able to automate how they handle backups and integrate ElephantSQL into their build systems. In order to meet those needs we have created API endpoints to all our backup features.

We have created endpoints for listing your backups, getting metadata for a single backup, creating new backups, restoring from a given backup and doing a point in time recovery on your database. Head over to the Backups tab at the ElephantSQL Console to get your apikey and see usage examples.

Please give us feedback on this and what else you may want available though APIs.
