Schedule API type is used as a repeatable request for the Velero server to perform a backup for a given cron notation. Once created, the
Velero Server will start the backup process. It will then wait for the next valid point of the given cron expression and execute the backup
process on a repeating basis.
Schedule belongs to the API group version
Here is a sample
Schedule object with each of the fields documented:
# Standard Kubernetes API Version declaration. Required. apiVersion: velero.io/v1 # Standard Kubernetes Kind declaration. Required. kind: Schedule # Standard Kubernetes metadata. Required. metadata: # Schedule name. May be any valid Kubernetes object name. Required. name: a # Schedule namespace. Must be the namespace of the Velero server. Required. namespace: velero # Parameters about the scheduled backup. Required. spec: # Schedule is a Cron expression defining when to run the Backup schedule: 0 7 * * * # Template is the spec that should be used for each backup triggered by this schedule. template: # Available since v1.9.1. # CSISnapshotTimeout specifies the time used to wait for # CSI VolumeSnapshot status turns to ReadyToUse during creation, before # returning error as timeout. The default value is 10 minute. csiSnapshotTimeout: 10m # Array of namespaces to include in the scheduled backup. If unspecified, all namespaces are included. # Optional. includedNamespaces: - '*' # Array of namespaces to exclude from the scheduled backup. Optional. excludedNamespaces: - some-namespace # Array of resources to include in the scheduled backup. 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 scheduled backup. Resources may be shortcuts (for example 'po' for 'pods') # or fully-qualified. Optional. excludedResources: - storageclasses.storage.k8s.io # 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 scheduled backup. For example, if a # PersistentVolumeClaim is included in the backup, 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 scheduled backup. Optional. labelSelector: matchLabels: app: velero component: server # Whether or not to snapshot volumes. This only applies to PersistentVolumes for Azure, GCE, and # AWS. Valid values are true, false, and null/unset. If unset, Velero performs snapshots as long as # a persistent volume provider is configured for Velero. snapshotVolumes: null # Where to store the tarball and logs. storageLocation: aws-primary # The list of locations in which to store volume snapshots created for backups under this schedule. volumeSnapshotLocations: - aws-primary - gcp-primary # The amount of time before backups created on this schedule are eligible for garbage collection. If not specified, # a default value of 30 days will be used. The default can be configured on the velero server # by passing the flag --default-backup-ttl. ttl: 24h0m0s # Whether restic should be used to take a backup of all pod volumes by default. defaultVolumesToRestic: true # The labels you want on backup objects, created from this schedule (instead of copying the labels you have on schedule object itself). # When this field is set, the labels from the Schedule resource are not copied to the Backup resource. metadata: labels: labelname: somelabelvalue # Actions to perform at different times during a backup. The only hook supported is # executing a command in a container in a pod using the pod exec API. Optional. hooks: # Array of hooks that are applicable to specific resources.

Optional. labelSelector: matchLabels: app: velero component: server # An array of hooks to run before executing custom actions. Only "exec" hooks are supported. pre: - # The type of hook. This must be "exec". exec: # The name of the container where the command will be executed. If unspecified, the # first container in the pod will be used. Optional. container: my-container # The command to execute, specified as an array. Required. command: - /bin/uname - -a # How to handle an error executing the command. Valid values are Fail and Continue. # Defaults to Fail. Optional. onError: Fail # How long to wait for the command to finish executing. Defaults to 30 seconds. Optional. timeout: 10s # An array of hooks to run after all custom actions and additional items have been # processed. Only "exec" hooks are supported. post: # Same content as pre above. # Specifies whether to use OwnerReferences on backups created by this Schedule. # Notice: if set to true, when schedule is deleted, backups will be deleted too. Optional. useOwnerReferencesInBackup: false status: # The current phase of the latest scheduled backup.
