Description

The Set-AzSqlDatabaseBackupLongTermRetentionPolicy cmdlet sets the long term retention policy registered to this database. The policy is an Azure Backup resource used to define backup storage policy.

Examples

Example 1: Set the weekly retention for the current version of long term retention policy

PS C:\> Set-AzSqlDatabaseBackupLongTermRetentionPolicy -ResourceGroupName resourcegroup01 -ServerName server01 -DatabaseName database01 -WeeklyRetention P2W


ResourceGroupName                      : resourcegroup01
ServerName                             : server01
DatabaseName                           : database01
WeeklyRetention                        : P2W
MonthlyRetention                       : PT0S
YearlyRetention                        : PT0S
WeekOfYear                             : 0
Location                               :

This sets the long term retention policy of database01 to save every weekly full backup for 2 weeks

Example 2: Set the monthly retention for the current version of long term retention policy

PS C:\> Set-AzSqlDatabaseBackupLongTermRetentionPolicy -ResourceGroupName resourcegroup01 -ServerName server01 -DatabaseName database01 -MonthlyRetention P5Y


ResourceGroupName                      : resourcegroup01
ServerName                             : server01
DatabaseName                           : database01
WeeklyRetention                        : PT0S
MonthlyRetention                       : P5Y
YearlyRetention                        : PT0S
WeekOfYear                             : 0
Location                               :

This sets the long term retention policy of database01 to save the first full backup of each month for 5 years

Example 3: Set the yearly retention for the current version of long term retention policy

PS C:\> Set-AzSqlDatabaseBackupLongTermRetentionPolicy -ResourceGroupName resourcegroup01 -ServerName server01 -DatabaseName database01 -YearlyRetention P10Y -WeekOfYear 26


ResourceGroupName                      : resourcegroup01
ServerName                             : server01
DatabaseName                           : database01
WeeklyRetention                        : PT0S
MonthlyRetention                       : PT0S
YearlyRetention                        : P10Y
WeekOfYear                             : 26
Location                               :

This sets the long term retention policy of database01 to save the full backup taken on the 26th week of the year for 10 years

Example 4: Set each retention for the current version of long term retention policy

PS C:\> Set-AzSqlDatabaseBackupLongTermRetentionPolicy -ResourceGroupName resourcegroup01 -ServerName server01 -DatabaseName database01 -WeeklyRetention 14 -MonthlyRetention P24W -YearlyRetention P10Y -WeekOfYear 26


ResourceGroupName                      : resourcegroup01
ServerName                             : server01
DatabaseName                           : database01
WeeklyRetention                        : P14D
MonthlyRetention                       : P24W
YearlyRetention                        : P10Y
WeekOfYear                             : 26
Location                               :

This sets the long term retention policy of database01 to save each full backup for 14 days, the first full backup of each month for 24 weeks, and the full backup taken on the 26th week of the year for 10 years

Example 4: Remove the long term retention policy

PS C:\> Set-AzSqlDatabaseBackupLongTermRetentionPolicy -ResourceGroupName resourcegroup01 -ServerName server01 -DatabaseName database01 -RemovePolicy


ResourceGroupName                      : resourcegroup01
ServerName                             : server01
DatabaseName                           : database01
WeeklyRetention                        : PT0S
MonthlyRetention                       : PT0S
YearlyRetention                        : PT0S
WeekOfYear                             : 0
Location                               :

Removes the policy for database01 so it no longer saves any long term retention backups. This will not affect backups that have already been taken

Example 4: Remove the long term retention policy

PS C:\> Set-AzSqlDatabaseBackupLongTermRetentionPolicy -ResourceGroupName resourcegroup01 -ServerName server01 -DatabaseName database01 -WeeklyRetention P0D


ResourceGroupName                      : resourcegroup01
ServerName                             : server01
DatabaseName                           : database01
WeeklyRetention                        : PT0S
MonthlyRetention                       : PT0S
YearlyRetention                        : PT0S
WeekOfYear                             : 0
Location                               :

This is another way of removing the policy for database01 so it no longer saves any long term retention backups. This will not affect backups that have already been taken
