Creating Restore Jobs

In this article

    You can create drafts of restore jobs that you want Veeam Backup for Salesforce to perform. After you create a draft, you can start the job right after you finish the restore job configuration wizard or later as described in Starting and Stopping Restore Jobs. 

    Veeam Backup for Salesforce suggests you 4 restore options:

    • Restore records — restores the complete records with all fields that are defined as updatable and creatable in Salesforce. You can also restore attachments associated with these records and the related objects hierarchy. By default, you can select up to 100 000 of records for this type of the restore job if hierarchy restore is disabled, and only up to 10 records if hierarchy restore is enabled. For more information on restore limits, see Configuring Advanced Settings.
    • Restore field value — restores specific field values of Salesforce records. Consider that you can only restore values of existing fields using this type of restore. If the fields were removed from Salesforce, you must perform the metadata restore first. By default, you can select up to 500000 of records for this type of the restore job. For more information on restore limits, see Configuring Advanced Settings.
    • Restore files — restores Salesforce files and attachments.
    • Restore metadata — restores Salesforce metadata.
