2935654 - How to create backups in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


User wants to maintain backups or revert to a previous file version within SAC


SAP Analytics Cloud


SAC requires the user to manually maintain backups


Very Important Note:
 It is not recommended to use exports to archive your content. Content can only be imported in the same version of the application from which it was exported, or the subsequent version. After your system is upgraded again, you cannot import the content. If your tenant is on the QRC schedule, your system will get an upgrade once a quarter. Any exports that are created from previous quarters will not be usable.

There are two methods for you to create/exports

    1. Navigate from the Menu >> Deployment >> Export
    2. Create a new export
    3. Select your desired files
    4. Create backup and download the .tgz file onto your local machine
    1. Navigate from the Menu >> Browse >> Content Network
    2. Click "Export a New Package"
    3. Select your desired files, then click "Next"
    4. Set the appropriate package properties and include the appropriate destination, then click "Next"
    5. Review, then click "Export"

When you want to restore to a previous version, you would import the file and overwrite appropriately

  • Importing from a .tgz file
    1. Navigate from the Menu >> Deployment >> Import
    2. Add a .tgz file not in the repository, or re-run an old import
    3. Click the "Import" icon
  • Import from the Content Network
    1. Navigate from the Menu >> Browse >> Content Network
    2. Click "My Content"
    3. Select package
    4. Click the "Import Options" tab
    5. Select the "Overwrite objects and data" selection to overwrite your old files
    6. Click "Import" button
