How to setup your own Azure Storage for your backups

How to setup your own Azure Storage for your backups

Our backups run by default on an automated basis. That means every day we take a backup of all your build (and release) pipelines and keep them in an encrypted state. You may also backup to your own storage which is easy to configure.

1. Log into Backrightup and click on your avatar in the top menu bar and click "Settings"

2. Click on "Storage Settings"

3. Add your own storage by clicking on the "Add New Azure Storage". Please double check your Azure Storage Connection string. Note that this string is kept in 256bit AES encrypted form with rotating keys and not available out-of-service

Note, the storage connection string is usually located under "Access Keys" in your Azure Portal. Click "Show" to see the connection

4. You can optionally choose to "force all repos to use this storage location". Handy when you have multiple storage locations for separate business units or clients with geographical backup requirements where you can set each repo to use different storage
