Get the Snapshot Schedule


Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {GROUP-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group when referring to descriptions. The endpoint remains as stated in the document.

Base URL:


GET /groups/GROUP-ID/backupConfigs/CLUSTER-ID/snapshotSchedule
