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 (IdPAn acronym for Identity Provider. It is a service that manages end user accounts analogous to user directories such as LDAP and Active Directory, and can send SAML responses to SPs to authenticate end users. Within this scenario, the IdP is Okta.) - configuration associated with your tenant
- Applications - All application configuration and associated information
- Data stores- All auxiliary data store information
- Logging configuration
- And more
