Back Up and Restore Konnect Configuration
Use decK to back up and restore Konnect’s runtime group configuration.
deck dump, decK generates state files for each runtime group, which act
as snapshots of the runtime group’s configuration at that point in time.
If a runtime group’s configuration is ever corrupted, you can then use these snapshots to
restore your runtime group, or bring up another runtime group with the same configuration.
Review the list of entities managed by decK to see what can be backed up.
Note: You can’t use this method to back up Dev Portal configuration and objects, such as documents, specs, and applications. There is currently no automated way to back up Dev Portal content.
Back up a Konnect runtime group
deck dump to back up your configuration:
deck dump \ --konnect-token <your-PAT> \ --konnect-runtime-group-name <group-name> \ --output-file /path/to/<my-backup.yaml>
We recommend using a personal access token to authenticate with the Konnect org. You can also choose a different form of authentication.
This command generates a state file for the runtime group’s entity configuration, for example:
_format_version: "3.0" _konnect: runtime_group_name: us-west consumers: - username: DianaPrince - username: WallyWest services: - connect_timeout: 60000 host: mockbin.org name: MyService tags: - _KonnectService:example_service ...
Restore a Konnect runtime group
You can restore entity configuration for a runtime group using a declarative configuration file. Note that you must do this for one group at a time.
Assuming you have a backup file, for example,
Run a diff between your backup file and the runtime group in Konnect to make sure you’re applying the configuration you want:
deck diff \ --konnect-token <your-PAT> \ --konnect-runtime-group-name <group-name> \ --output-file /path/to/<my-backup.yaml>
If you’re satisfied with the diff result, run
deck sync to sync your configuration to
a runtime group:
deck sync \ --konnect-token <your-PAT> \ --konnect-runtime-group-name <group-name> \ --output-file /path/to/<my-backup.yaml>
Check your runtime group in Konnect to make sure the sync worked. Open Runtime Manager, select your runtime group, and check through the configured entities.
