Legacy Backup Snapshots

Important
Legacy Backup Deprecated

MongoDB deprecated the Legacy Backup feature. Clusters that use Legacy Backup can continue to use it. MongoDB recommends using Cloud Backups. Effective 23 March 2020, all new clusters can only use Cloud Backups.

Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {GROUP-ID} is the same as your project ID. For existing groups, your group/project ID remains the same. The resource and corresponding endpoints use the term groups.

The snapshots resource enables you to view snapshot metadata, edit snapshot expiration dates, and remove existing snapshots. A snapshot is a backup of your data captured at a specific point in time.
