Backup configure & restore

Introduction to Backup

What is the Backup addon?

Soffid allows you to add a backup addon to the console to save a snapshot for each user to keep track of changes as they occur.

Main Menu > Administration > Configuration > Global Settings > User backup configure & restore

On the User backup configure & restore page you could manage the user snapshots and configure the backup.

The user's snapshot will be available on the User page as well. There you could manage the user backup data.
