- Plesk for Linux
Is it possible to automate remote backup settings for newly created subscriptions? For example, so that new subscriptions that are created have certain scheduled settings for Cloud Backup (Amazon S3) by default without manually setting those settings.
Since all newly created subscriptions propagate their settings from a service plan, it is not possible to do that: service plans do not allow setting up a certain backup options.
As a workaround, a Plesk administrator can give a permission to the customers to manage backup setting on their own: this way Plesk customers will be able to setup required Amazon S3 account and schedule backups. This is possible in Service Plans > Permissions > Backup and restoration of subscription data using remote storage.
Also, if the remote storage and scheduled backup option is setup in global Plesk settings in Tools & Settings > Backup Manager, then server-wide backups will be stored on Amazon S3 and will include all subscriptions on a server.
