Programmatically set backups

Can you make it possible to turn on backups programmatically? It would be great if the backup option could be set at the creation of a database or separately on an existing database. That way, if you have many databases managed by many different users, you won’t have to go through the dashboard every day to make sure their data is being backed up.

Hi @MarcelW thanks for this ask. We are planning to provide and API for Backup and Restore through which you would be able to both configure backups and trigger a recoveries.

Being able to activate backups at time of database creation is a feature that is also on our roadmap. We recognize a need for administrators within an account to be able to set configuration policies, which assure that any new database in a hierarchy has backups set by default. Would such configuration policies be useful to you?
