    Add backup rule

  3. Build your rule by populating the following fields:

    • Rule Name: Enter a descriptive name for your rule
    • Pod selector: Enter any label selectors based on your pod’s labels. For example, app = postgres uses the app label to select pods running postgres. Use any of the equality-based selector operators.
    • Container (Optional): Enter the optional name of the container to which Portworx Backup will apply the rule.
    • Action: Enter any commands you want to execute when the rule is triggered.
    • Background: Enable this if you want the rule to run in the background. Rule runs as a background process, can be used to backup crash consistent applications. (For example, mySQL)
    • Run in single pod: Run this rule in a single pod. Kubernetes scheduler chooses the pod here and can be used to take a backup of your elective lead based applications. (For example, mongoDB)
