API for plan management
Hi, is there some api available for plan management? Looking at the current api, there’s no way to create a draft/plan. However, digging into the webconsole, I could find many endpoints that could be useful on this matter. Of course, they are “private”, so I believe they are not intended for external usage(although I could, using postman).
Thanks for the question!
It's true that you can use postman and run API requests for backup plans (and Backup Console in general).
However, we do not have any public documentation for the matter, because Backup API is going to be changed a lot in the future releases, such as Acronis Cyber Cloud 8.0 and later on.
We do have a KB article, a part of which you can use for your goals, please see this link -> https://kb.acronis.com/content/60276
The article describes a specific goal of making a backup plan use te existing archives to read the additional data to. Besides from that, you can use the backup plan creation kit.
You can use Browser Development tools (F12 in Chrome, Firefox, Ctrl+Shift+I in some other browsers) to reverse engineer the calls and compose your own.
Please note, that since Backup API is not public, the calls that you develop may and will stop working without additional notice in the future.
Let me know if that covers it!
