backup API response

edited April 2016 in Help
Shouldn't the backup list API response include a SUBID in each element in the response?

How do I find out when my instance was last backed up via API?



  • Hello,

    Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, that's not possible with the "/v1/backups" API calls yet. Although it's not as convenient as our automatic backup system, you could use the "/v1/snapshot" calls in the meanwhile to create and label your snapshots.
  • @maul what is the difference between a backup and a snapshot? Is a backup just a snapshot that vultr performs automatically?
  • Hi trwww,

    For the most part, yes. On the Vultr API though, we treat snapshots and backups as different types of objects. There are separate calls for using both types of objects.
