This page describes how to view a list of AlloyDB backups.

Before you begin

  • The Cloud project you are using must have been enabled to access AlloyDB.
  • You must have one of these IAM roles in the Cloud project you are using:
    • roles/alloydb.admin (the AlloyDB Admin predefined IAM role)
    • roles/owner (the Owner basic IAM role)
    • roles/editor (the Editor basic IAM role)

    If you don't have any of these roles, contact your Organization Administrator to request access.



In the Google Cloud console, go to the Backups page.

Go to Backups

The list of backups in the current project is displayed.


To use the gcloud CLI, you can install and initialize the Google Cloud CLI, or you can use Cloud Shell.
