Creating local backup and restoring it to the cloud - Acceptance

0
Hi Everyone,  I have downloaded our Acceptance environment “database only” and have cleaned up a few entries. I would now like to create a backup file in pgAdmin to upload back into our Acceptance environment. Is it possible to create a “database only” upload and restore from this? If so, how can this be done? Thank you.

In pgadmin, rightclick the name of you database and in the contextmenu that shows up, select ‘Backup’. That will export the data to a file. This is “database only” by definition, since you have created it using a “database only” download.

Then go to your project in sprintr and click “Backup”. Then click “Upload Backup” and select your file. Pretty sure it will get accepted as a valid file for restore as long as you have only removed objects.

Mind you: if you cleaned up objects the refer to filedocuments, those filedocuments will become orphans that will keep taking up space on your storage.
