Restoring Elasticsearch backups

There is no direct way for us to restore Elasticsearch backups either via the API or console.

In order to have a bakup restored you will need to open a support ticket with Aiven via support@aiven.io requesting a restoration of a backup they will need to know the instance ID prod-$(cf service <servicename> --guid) and the time of the backup you would like restored.

The Web interface only shows the latest backup, they are taken on a 2 hourly basis and retained as follows;

  • Startup (our tiny plan): 2 days
  • Business (our small plan): 14 days

If you are not sure which time, ask for a list of the available backups for the instance ID in question.
