The list below explains the properties that can be set for the PostgresBackupLocation resource.

Metadata

The metadata sets the name, namespace, labels, annotations, and more for the PostgresBackupLocation object.
The metadata follows standard Kubernetes conventions. See more at the Kubernetes API structure - Metadata documentation.

name

Type: String
Required
Default: n/a
The name of the PostgresBackupLocation. Must be unique within a namespace.
Example:
backuplocation-sample

Spec

The spec describes the desired state for the Postgres object.

retentionPolicy

Type: Object
Optional
Default: n/a
This collection of fields describes the Postgres database backup retention plans. For more details, see the topic Retention in the pgBackRest User Guide.

  • fullRetention
    Type: Object
    Optional
    Default: 9999999
    This field describes the retention period of the full backups for this instance.
    The object fullRetention has two fields, type and number:
    type is a string of either count or time; default is count with value 9999999 (the maximum value allowed by pgbackrest).
    number is an integer.
    If type: time then number indicates the number of days backups are retained before expiring.
    If type: count then it indicates the number of backups that are retained.
    A fullRetention value of 1 retains one full backup; older backups will be deleted when a new backup is taken.
    NOTE: Scheduled and adhoc backups affect the retention count. Users should be aware of retention count when executing adhoc backup operations.
    Example:

    retentionPolicy:
        fullRetention:
            type: count
            number: 2
    

    creates a retention policy of 2 full backups before an older third backup can be expired.
    Example:

    retentionPolicy:
        fullRetention:
            type: time
            number: 20
    

    creates a retention policy of 20 days before a backup can be expired.

  • diffRetention
    Type: Object
    Optional
    Default: 9999999
    This field describes the retention period of the differential backups for this instance.
    The object diffRetention has one field, number, an integer.
    A diffRetention value of 1 retains one differential backup; older backups will be deleted when a new backup is taken.
    The differential backup retention does not support the type field. Differential retention does not support deleting backups based on time, only count.
    Example:

    retentionPolicy:
        diffRetention:
            number: 2
    

    creates a retention policy of 2 differential backups before an older third differential backup can be expired.

storage

Type: Object
Optional
Default: n/a
This collection of fields describes the S3 or Azure bucket characteristics. Use only one of the two supported storage locations per PostgresBackupLocation CRD.

  • s3.bucket
    Type: String
    Required
    Default: n/a
    The name of an existing S3-compatible bucket for this backup location. A bucket of this name should already exist in s3.
    Example
    s3-bucket-sample

  • s3.bucketPath
    Type: String
    Optional
    Default: /
    The name of the path where backup artifacts will be uploaded. If a folder in the path does not already exist, it is created automatically. The trailing slash in the path is required.
    Example
    s3-sample-path/sample-subpath/

  • s3.region
    Type: String
    Optional
    Default: us-east-1
    The geographic region of the bucket. Some non-AWS S3 implementations do not require this value.
    Example
    us-west-1

  • s3.endpoint
    Type: String
    Required
    **Default: **
    The endpoint URL for the configured S3-compatible provider.
    Example
    minio.default:9000

  • s3.forcePathStyle
    Type: Boolean
    Optional
    Default: false
    A value of true forces the use of path-style S3 URLs for compatibility. May be required for some non-AWS S3 providers.
    A value of false uses virtual hosted-style S3 URLs.
    Path-style URLs look like the following: https://bucket-endpoint.example.com/bucket Virtual hosted-style URLs look like the following: https://bucket.bucket-endpoint.example.com For information about AWS S3 Path Deprecation, see the Amazon S3 Path Deprecation Plan blog post.

  • s3.enableSSL
    Type: Boolean
    Required
    Default: true
    true enables SSL for S3 server validation.
    false disables SSL.

  • s3.secret.name
    Type: String
    Required
    Default: n/a
    The name of the Kubernetes secret that contains the credentials for connecting to S3.
    Example
    backuplocation-sample-creds

  • azure.container
    Type: String
    Required
    Default: n/a
    The name of an existing Azure storage container for this backup location. A container of this name should already exist in Azure.
    Example
    azure-container-sample

  • azure.repoPath
    Type: String
    Optional
    Default: n/a
    The name of the path where backup artifacts will be uploaded. If a folder in the path does not already exist, it is created automatically. The trailing slash in the path is required.
    Example
    azure-sample-path/sample-subpath/

  • azure.endpoint
    Type: String
    Required
    Default: blob.core.windows.net
    The endpoint URL for the configured Azure storage.
    Example
    blob.core.windows.net

  • azure.keyType
    Type: String
    Optional
    Default: shared
    The Azure repository key type. Supported values are either shared or sas.
    A value of shared presents a shared key.
    A value of sas presents a shared signature access key.
    Example
    shared

  • azure.forcePathStyle
    Type: Boolean
    Optional
    Default: false
    A value of true forces the use of path-style URLs.
    A value of false uses virtual hosted-style S3 URLs.
    Path-style URLs look like the following: https://bucket-endpoint.example.com/bucket. Virtual hosted-style URLs look like the following: https://bucket.bucket-endpoint.example.com.

  • azure.enableSSL
    Type: Boolean
    Required
    Default: true
