Velero can restore resources into a different namespace than the one they were backed up from. To do this, use the
velero restore create RESTORE_NAME \ --from-backup BACKUP_NAME \ --namespace-mappings old-ns-1:new-ns-1,old-ns-2:new-ns-2
A restore object represents the restore operation. There are two types of deletion for restore objects:
velero restore delete
This command will delete the custom resource representing it, along with its individual log and results files. But, it will not delete any objects that were created by it from your cluster.
kubectl -n velero delete restore
This command will delete the custom resource representing the restore, but will not delete log/results files from object storage, or any objects that were created during the restore in your cluster.
To see all commands for restores, run :
velero restore --help
To see all options associated with a specific command, provide the --help flag to that command. For example,
velero restore create --help shows all options associated with the create command.
velero restore --help

Velero can change the storage class of persistent volumes and persistent volume claims during restores. To configure a storage class mapping, create a config map in the Velero namespace like the following:
apiVersion: v1 kind: ConfigMap metadata: # any name can be used; Velero uses the labels (below) # to identify it rather than the name name: change-storage-class-config # must be in the velero namespace namespace: velero # the below labels should be used verbatim in your # ConfigMap. labels: # this value-less label identifies the ConfigMap as # config for a plugin (i.e. the built-in change storage # class restore item action plugin) velero.io/plugin-config: "" # this label identifies the name and kind of plugin # that this ConfigMap is for. velero.io/change-storage-class: RestoreItemAction data: # add 1+ key-value pairs here, where the key is the old # storage class name and the value is the new storage # class name. <old-storage-class>: <new-storage-class>
