Learn how to connect your Scaleway account in order to schedule automatic snapshots of your Scaleway Compute Instances.

In order to start scheduling automated & frequent native snapshots of your Scaleway Compute Instances, you must connect your Scaleway account.

After connecting the account, Weap.io will automatically import all your Scaleway Compute Instances and you will be able to choose the ones that should be backed-up, configure the backup frequency and finally the retention policy.

1. Open the Weap.io Provider Snapshots page

Open your Weap.io dashboard and click the Provider Backups button located in the top menu. On the page just opened, click the button Connect cloud account.

2. Generate your Scaleway API Key

In order for Weap.io to be able to create snapshots of your Scaleway Compute Instances, you must create an API Key. Open the Scaleway Console in a new tab, select your project and choose the Credentials tab. Next, click the Generate API Key button.

3. Select the Scaleway provider, choose a name for the account and provide your API key

Go back to Weap.io and in the opened modal select the Scaleway provider. Type an intuitive name that will help you easily recognize the account later.

Paste the API Access & Secret key generated in the previous step and choose the location of your Scaleway project.

When done, click the Save button.

4. Synchronize the account

After clicking the Save button, the list of your connected accounts will be reloaded and the newly connected account will appear.

The last thing you have to do is clicking the button Synchronize account. By doing that, Weap.io will import all your Scaleway Compute Instances. If you don't press the button, Weap.io will automatically run the synchronization after some minutes.

Once synchronized, all your Scaleway Compute Instances will be visible and you will be able to configure the backup frequency, retention or even completely pause the backups for some of them.
