Schedule List

Once a schedule has been created, it will be listed on this page. There are two indicator icons at the beginning of every row, showing if compression and/or encryption is enabled. Hover your mouse over the icons to reveal the actual state. Moreover, you can also tell by looking at the color of the icons (bolder icon if the option is enabled).

The Schedule List displays a tabular format consisting of six (6) columns which are Name, Method, Last Execution, Schedule, Server, Storage, and Actions.

The Name column shows the title of the schedule name. It is a sortable column.

The Method name shows the backup method of the scheduled entry. It is also a sortable column.

The Last Execution column shows the last execution state which will show a dotted color of blue (running), green (completed), or red (failed) and its last execution interval. Clicking the value in the column will reveal more information like Backup Name, Created At and Status. It is also a sortable column.

The Schedule column shows the scheduled period (e.g. Every 1 Hour, or Every 30 minutes).

The Server column shows the name of the host and its IP of the server on which the backup was taken. The value of this column is based on the Server List. Its column value is clickable. Once clicked, it will reveal the state of the bartender process of health status within the server if it’s running or inactive.

The Storage column shows the label(s) you named for every storage location set up during the creation of your backup scheduled. The label(s) are clickable for which upon clicked, it will reveal the path of the backup storage and its retention date (e.g. 1 week or 1 month). It does also tells you if the label is stored locally on the server’s path or is stored in the cloud.

The Actions column shows a list of buttons that allows you to do specific things regarding the scheduled entry. These are Pause/Resume, Edit, and More.

  • Clicking Pause button if you want to pause the execution of backup. While Resume (only when the scheduled entry was been marked as pause), resumes your scheduled entry to proceed to execute the backup.
  • Clicking Edit if you want to apply changes to the specific schedule of the backup. Not all are applicable for changes, but as of the recent version of Backup Ninja, only the storage label name is not modifiable and the rest are changeable. Refer to Storages to know how to add a new store location.

Take note that an edited backup schedule will only take place on the next execution time, overriding the configuration that you had for the schedule.

  • Clicking More will expand showing you more options to select which are Show Backups, Create Copy and Delete.
    • Selecting Show Backups, will redirect you to the Backups which lists all the backup entries that were executed but filters based on the scheduled name.
    • Selecting Create Copy will open a modal dialog box which is a pre-populated field with the current scheduled backup policy you have chosen. You just have to hit the Continue button or modify the fields you want to change. If your entry was encrypted, Create Copy does not enable encryption since Backup Ninja does not store any encryption keys. Encryption keys have to be stored privately and securely at your own discretion. If you want to create the same backup policy for another server, then it makes sense to just use this Create Copy option.
    • Selecting Delete will just delete the scheduled entry. Deleting a schedule does not remove the existing backups correspond to this schedule.
