Backup and restore
Backing up your Access Gateway appliances and configurations is a proactive safeguard against data loss, down-time, and other unwanted negative impacts to your business. There are two primary methods of backing up Access Gateway appliances and configurations, and we highly suggest implementing both.
Virtual environment-based backups
Image-based backups are created using the built-in snapshot functionality found in VMware, VirtualBox, and other hypervisor products. The benefit of image-based backups is that the entire Access Gateway appliance and virtual machine is backed up.
Access Gateway-based backup and restore
Access Gateway supports backup of instance state including:
- Okta tenant (IDP) - Configuration associated with your tenant
- Applications - All application configuration and associated information
- Data stores- All auxiliary data store information
- Logging configuration
