Backing up and restoring the OnCommand Workflow Automation database and configurations on Linux

You can back up and restore the OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) database and supported configurations so that you can recover the data in case of a disaster. The supported configurations include data access, HTTP timeout, and SSL certificates.

Before you begin

You must have administrator privileges or architect credentials.

About this task

You must create the backup in a secure location because restoring the backup will provide access to all the storage systems that are accessed by WFA.

Note:
  • A comprehensive backup of WFA databases and configurations is required during disaster recovery and can be used in both standalone and high-availability environments.
  • You can use only the CLI commands or REST APIs for comprehensive backup and restore operations during disaster recovery.

    You cannot use the web UI for backing up or restoring the WFA database during disaster recovery.

Steps

  1. Back up the OnCommand Workflow Automation database.
  2. Restore a previous backup of the OnCommand Workflow Automation database.
