Execute a Backup Policy On Demand


While backup policies are automatically executed within the defined schedule, Druva CloudRanger offers options to execute your backup policies on-demand.

Use the Execute Now feature to:

  • Verify that the correct resources have been applied to the backup policy.
  • Run or test a backup policy outside of your policy schedule.
Note:  Executing a backup policy on-demand will create an AMI or a snapshot with unlimited retention.

Executing a backup policy

To execute a backup policy:

  1. Navigate to Backup Policies on the left navigation menu and select the policy you wish to execute.
  2. Click Execute Now to initiate the backup policy.


The subsequent backups that are generated on policy execution may be reviewed under Backups.
In addition, the details of the policy execution can be viewed on the Jobs page.
