Configuring Backup Settings

To specify backup vaults that will be used to store backups of the selected DynamoDB tables, do the following:

  1. In the Backups section of the Targets step of the wizard, click Choose backup vaults.
  2. In the Choose backup vaults window, for each AWS Region included in the policy, specify a backup vault to save and organize table backups. To do that:
  1. Select an AWS Region and click Edit.
  2. In the Edit Backup Vault window, from the Backup vault drop-down list, select the necessary backup vault.

For a backup vault to be displayed in the Backup vault list, it must be created in the AWS Backup console as described in AWS Documentation. If no custom backup vaults exist in the selected AWS Region, the list will contain the default backup vault only.


Consider the following:

  • Make sure policies assigned to the selected backup vault allow Veeam Backup for AWS to access vault resources and to perform backup, backup copy and restore operations. For more information on vault access policies, see AWS Documentation.
  • For Veeam Backup for AWS to be able to back up DynamoDB tables, you must configure the AWS Backup settings to enable both the Opt-in service and the advanced features for Amazon DynamoDB backups. Otherwise, Veeam Backup for AWS will automatically enable these settings for each AWS Region specified in the Backups section in your AWS account while performing backup operations. For more information on advanced DynamoDB backup, see AWS Documentation.
