This is the documentation for the latest development version of Velero. Both code and docs may be unstable, and these docs are not guaranteed to be up to date or correct. See the latest version.
Restore API type is used as a request for the Velero server to perform a Restore. Once created, the
Velero Server immediately starts the Restore process.
Restore belongs to the API group version
Here is a sample
Restore object with each of the fields documented:
# Standard Kubernetes API Version declaration. Required. apiVersion: velero.io/v1 # Standard Kubernetes Kind declaration. Required. kind: Restore # Standard Kubernetes metadata. Required. metadata: # Restore name. May be any valid Kubernetes object name. Required. name: a-very-special-backup-0000111122223333 # Restore namespace. Must be the namespace of the Velero server. Required. namespace: velero # Parameters about the restore. Required. spec: # The unique name of the Velero backup to restore from. backupName: a-very-special-backup # The unique name of the Velero schedule # to restore from. If specified, and BackupName is empty, Velero will # restore from the most recent successful backup created from this schedule. scheduleName: my-scheduled-backup-name # ItemOperationTimeout specifies the time used to wait for # asynchronous BackupItemAction operations # The default value is 1 hour. itemOperationTimeout: 1h # Array of namespaces to include in the restore. If unspecified, all namespaces are included. # Optional. includedNamespaces: - '*' # Array of namespaces to exclude from the restore. Optional. excludedNamespaces: - some-namespace # Array of resources to include in the restore. Resources may be shortcuts (for example 'po' for 'pods') # or fully-qualified. If unspecified, all resources are included. Optional. includedResources: - '*' # Array of resources to exclude from the restore. Resources may be shortcuts (for example 'po' for 'pods') # or fully-qualified. Optional. excludedResources: - storageclasses.storage.k8s.io # restoreStatus selects resources to restore not only the specification, but # the status of the manifest. This is specially useful for CRDs that maintain # external references. By default, it excludes all resources. restoreStatus: # Array of resources to include in the restore status. Just like above, # resources may be shortcuts (for example 'po' for 'pods') or fully-qualified. # If unspecified, no resources are included. Optional. includedResources: - workflows # Array of resources to exclude from the restore status. Resources may be # shortcuts (for example 'po' for 'pods') or fully-qualified. # If unspecified, all resources are excluded. Optional. excludedResources:  # Whether or not to include cluster-scoped resources. Valid values are true, false, and # null/unset. If true, all cluster-scoped resources are included (subject to included/excluded # resources and the label selector). If false, no cluster-scoped resources are included. If unset, # all cluster-scoped resources are included if and only if all namespaces are included and there are # no excluded namespaces. Otherwise, if there is at least one namespace specified in either # includedNamespaces or excludedNamespaces, then the only cluster-scoped resources that are backed # up are those associated with namespace-scoped resources included in the restore. For example, if a # PersistentVolumeClaim is included in the restore, its associated PersistentVolume (which is # cluster-scoped) would also be backed up. includeClusterResources: null # Individual objects must match this label selector to be included in the restore. Optional. labelSelector: matchLabels: app: velero component: server # Individual object when matched with any of the label selector specified in the set are to be included in the restore. Optional. # orLabelSelectors as well as labelSelector cannot co-exist, only one of them can be specified in the restore request orLabelSelectors: - matchLabels: app: velero - matchLabels: app: data-protection # namespaceMapping is a map of source namespace names to # target namespace names to restore into. Any source namespaces not # included in the map will be restored into namespaces of the same name. namespaceMapping: namespace-backup-from: namespace-to-restore-to # restorePVs specifies whether to restore all included PVs # from snapshot. Optional restorePVs: true # preserveNodePorts specifies whether to restore old nodePorts from backup, # so that the exposed port numbers on the node will remain the same after restore. Optional preserveNodePorts: true # existingResourcePolicy specifies the restore behaviour # for the Kubernetes resource to be restored. Optional existingResourcePolicy: none # Actions to perform during or post restore. The only hooks currently supported are # adding an init container to a pod before it can be restored and executing a command in a # restored pod's container. Optional. hooks: # Array of hooks that are applicable to specific resources. Optional. resources: # Name is the name of this hook. - name: restore-hook-1 # Array of namespaces to which this hook applies. If unspecified, the hook applies to all # namespaces. Optional. includedNamespaces: - ns1 # Array of namespaces to which this hook does not apply. Optional. excludedNamespaces: - ns3 # Array of resources to which this hook applies. If unspecified, the hook applies to all resources in the backup. Optional. # The only resource supported at this time is pods. includedResources: - pods # Array of resources to which this hook does not apply. Optional. excludedResources:  # This hook only applies to objects matching this label selector. Optional. labelSelector: matchLabels: app: velero component: server # An array of hooks to run during or after restores. Currently only "init" and "exec" hooks # are supported. postHooks: # The type of the hook. This must be "init" or "exec". - init: # An array of container specs to be added as init containers to pods to which this hook applies to. initContainers: - name: restore-hook-init1 image: alpine:latest # Mounting volumes from the podSpec to which this hooks applies to. volumeMounts: - mountPath: /restores/pvc1-vm # Volume name from the podSpec name: pvc1-vm command: - /bin/ash - -c - echo -n "FOOBARBAZ" >> /restores/pvc1-vm/foobarbaz - name: restore-hook-init2 image: alpine:latest # Mounting volumes from the podSpec to which this hooks applies to. volumeMounts: - mountPath: /restores/pvc2-vm # Volume name from the podSpec name: pvc2-vm command: - /bin/ash - -c - echo -n "DEADFEED" >> /restores/pvc2-vm/deadfeed - exec: # The container name where the hook will be executed. Defaults to the first container. # Optional. container: foo # The command that will be executed in the container. Required. command: - /bin/bash - -c - "psql < /backup/backup.sql" # How long to wait for a container to become ready. This should be long enough for the # container to start plus any preceding hooks in the same container to complete. The wait # timeout begins when the container is restored and may require time for the image to pull # and volumes to mount. If not set the restore will wait indefinitely. Optional. waitTimeout: 5m # How long to wait once execution begins. Defaults to 30 seconds. Optional. execTimeout: 1m # How to handle execution failures. Valid values are `Fail` and `Continue`. Defaults to # `Continue`. With `Continue` mode, execution failures are logged only. With `Fail` mode, # no more restore hooks will be executed in any container in any pod and the status of the # Restore will be `PartiallyFailed`. Optional. onError: Continue # RestoreStatus captures the current status of a Velero restore. Users should not set any data here. status: # The current phase. # Valid values are New, FailedValidation, InProgress, WaitingForPluginOperations, # WaitingForPluginOperationsPartiallyFailed, Completed, PartiallyFailed, Failed. phase: "" # An array of any validation errors encountered. validationErrors: null # Number of attempted RestoreItemAction operations for this restore. restoreItemOperationsAttempted: 2 # Number of RestoreItemAction operations that Velero successfully completed for this restore. restoreItemOperationsCompleted: 1 # Number of RestoreItemAction operations that ended in failure for this restore. restoreItemOperationsFailed: 0 # Number of warnings that were logged by the restore. warnings: 2 # Errors is a count of all error messages that were generated # during execution of the restore.
