  • You have the required permissions. For more information, see Permissions

 For the detailed procedure, see Data Backup

Step 1: Create a backup definition

You can configure the following settings in a backup definition. 

Setting

Description

General

  • Name or description to describe the backup definition.

Scheduling

Salesforce App takes a daily backup of your Salesforce data. It will start with a full backup of all the data inside of your Salesforce org (standard, custom, and managed package objects along with attachments, content, knowledge articles, and chatter). It will perform incremental backups every day after the initial full backup. The incremental backups capture the daily records created, updated, and deleted.

Notification

Configure notifications for successful and/or failed backups along with any notifications. These notifications can be received through email and/or text.

Excluded Objects

Objects you want to exclude or include objects from the backup

Excluded Fields

Fields you want to exclude from the backup.

Metadata

You can enable metadata backups, which perform a backup of all files for the selected metadata during each backup cycle. 

Permissions

You can assign recommended Salesforce permissions to a user account associated with an organization with configured backups. This ensures data backup covering the required fields and associated records.

Alerts

Configure alerts to be notified if there are large changes to specified objects.

Step 2: Run the backup job
