Backup and Restore the Connector’s State

Topics in this Section

After configuring a connector, and while the connector is running, you can create a backup of the connector’s state. In the event of a failure, you can restore the connector’s state from the backup.
To create a backup, use the backup action. The backup action saves a ZIP file to a path that you specify. The backup includes:
a copy of the actions folder, which stores information about actions that have been queued, are running, and have finished.
a copy of the connector’s datastore files, which contain information about the files, records, or other data that the connector has retrieved from a repository.
