List Server Database Restore Requests (classic)


THIS TOPIC APPLIES TO: noSQL Server yesAzure SQL DatabaseyesAzure SQL Data Warehouse noParallel Data Warehouse

Gets a list of database restore requests for an Azure SQL Database server.


The recommended REST commands to work with SQL Database are the Resource Manager based Azure SQL Database REST API. While there is no change to SQL Database, be aware that the classic deployment model command in this article is scheduled for deprecation on December 1, 2019. For a table providing links to the specific new commands you should use, see Operations for Azure SQL Databases.


The preferred method for retrieving information about databases that are being restored is to use the Database Operation Status (classic) command.

  • Replace {subscriptionId} with your subscription ID.

  • Replace {serverName} with the name of the server to query.
