Account backups API

Account backups let you create a complete off-site backup of your Aha! account. They can be created, listed, and downloaded via the API.

An account backup may only be created once every 24 hours.

The backup file contains a representation of all of the data in the Aha! account, including all relationships. It does not contain user authentication data or integration secrets. The backup does not include any uploaded files.

Account backups are an Enterprise+ exclusive feature.

Create an account backup

POST /api/v1/account_backups

The backup may take some time to generate (as long as ten minutes in a large account). You should poll the GET endpoint to see when the backup is complete. You should not poll more frequently than once every twenty seconds. Returns an HTTP status of 429 if a backup was already created within the last 24 hours.
