Exporting and Importing Backup Policies

In this article

    Veeam Backup for GCP allows you to use settings of an existing backup policy as a template for creating other backup policies. You can export a backup policy to a .JSON file, modify the necessary settings in the file, and then import the policy to the same or a different backup appliance.

    Exporting Backup Policies

    To export a backup policy to a .JSON file, do the following:

    1. Navigate to Policies.
    2. Select the necessary backup policy and click Advanced > Export Policy.

    Veeam Backup for GCP will save the backup policy settings as a single .JSON file to the default download directory on the local machine.
