Enabling and Disabling Snapshot Policy

Last updated: 2022-06-24 10:49:21

    A successfully created snapshot policy is enabled by default. This document describes how to disable and enable it again when needed. Disabling it will stop generating snapshot backups of all its associated security groups without deleting the original backup information.

    After the policy is disabled, no more backups will be performed but the original backup information will not be deleted.

    2. On the Snapshot Policy page, click the snapshot policy ID to enter the details page. The blue toggle button in the figure indicates that the policy is enabled.
    3. Click the button, confirm the impact in the Disable Snapshot Policy pop-up window, and click OK.
