I’m exploring snapshots as means to fully backup / restore IOT device running UC 20.
Full system snapshot (https://snapcraft.io/docs/snapshots) captures all my snap data - great! …but I did not see any of my custom system options (https://snapcraft.io/docs/system-options) stored away in the various snapshot zips
Is there support for snapshotting / restoring system options?
snap get -d system >options-backup.json
(or the equivalent via a management snap and the snapd API)
Thanks for reply. We had considered that , was hoping I had just missed something about backing up system options.
We are kicking around this approach
- user or system kicks off a backup
- generate system options-backup.json
- store $SNAP_DATA for one of our snaps
- perform system snapshot
After snapshot restore, update system options from options-backup.
