Before you begin
You can use these workflows as part of administering the applications in an Astra managed cluster.
|These workflows can be expanded and enhanced by NetApp at any time and so you should review them periodically.
Before using any of the Astra workflows, make sure to review Prepare to use the workflows.
The management workflows are organized in different categories to make it easier to locate the one you want.
These workflows allow you to control the managed and unmanaged applications. You can list the apps as well as create and remove a managed app.
You can use these workflows to protect your managed applications through snapshots and backups.
Cloning and restoring apps
These workflow describe how to clone and restore your managed applications.
There are several workflows available to debug and support your applications as well as the general Kubernetes environment.
There are a several additional considerations when using the management workflows.
Cloning an app
There are a few things to consider when cloning an application. The parameters described below are part of the JSON input.
- Source cluster identifier
The value of
sourceClusterIDalways identifies the cluster where the original app is installed.
- Cluster identifier
The value of
clusterIDidentifies the cluster where the new app will be installed.
When cloning within the same cluster,
sourceClusterIDhave the same value.
When cloning across clusters, the two values are different and
clusterIDshould be the ID of the target cluster.
namespacevalue must be different than the original source app. Further, the namespace for the clone cannot exist and Astra will create it.
- Backups and snapshots
You can optionally clone an application from an existing backup or snapshot using the
snapshotIDparameters. If you don't provide a backup or snapshot, Astra will create a backup of the application first and then clone from the backup.
Restoring an app
Here are a few things to consider when restoring an application.
Restoring an application is very similar to the clone operation.
When restoring an app, you must provide either a backup or snapshot.
