Taking a Snapshot

Updated 3 months ago by Copado Solutions

A Snapshot is a full backup of the selected metadata types into a repository/branch.

To take a snapshot, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the Git Snapshots tab and select an existing Git Snapshot record.
  2. Click on Take Snapshot Now:

  1. Optionally, enter a commit message.

You can apply environment variables and global find and replace rules (YAML file) to the snapshot. The YAML file is taken from the pipeline. If there is no YAML file in the pipeline,  it will be taken from the environment.

With the frequency set, Copado will create a scheduled job and will automatically back up your Salesforce org.
