In order to start scheduling automated & frequent native snapshots of your UpCloud Cloud Storages, you must connect your UpCloud account.
After connecting the account, Weap.io will automatically import all your UpCloud Cloud Storages and you will be able to choose the ones that should be backed-up, configure the backup frequency and finally the retention policy.
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.
The UpCloud API uses your account username and password for authentication. You can use your main user or create a new sub-account for giving Weap.io API access.
If you choose to create a sub-account, open the UpCloud dashboard in a new tab, click the
People button in the top navigation and click the button
Add member. You will see a page where you must type the details of the new sub-account. Remember that the
password will be used for the API authentication.
Go back to Weap.io and in the opened modal select the
UpCloud provider. Type an intuitive name that will help you easily recognize the account later.
Next, paste the API Username & Password of your account (or sub-account created in the previous step).
When done, click the
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 UpCloud Cloud Storages. If you don't press the button, Weap.io will automatically run the synchronization after some minutes.
Once synchronized, all your UpCloud Cloud Storages will be visible and you will be able to configure the backup frequency, retention or even completely pause the backups for some of them.
