Excluding Objects from a Backup Operation


On this page

You can define a list of objects names to exclude from a backup operation. You can use standard regular expressions to match a set of objects. For example, if you want to skip all external objects, enter .*__x$.

You should exclude all external objects, as they are not supported. Backup operations that include external objects are expected to fail.
