You can create a managed application based on an application already known to Astra. When an application is managed, you can protect it by taking regular backups and snapshots.

Before you begin

1. Manage the application

Perform the following REST API call.

HTTP method Path

In addition to the parameters common with all REST API calls, the following parameters are also used in the curl examples for this step.
