Elastic Cloud is not putting snapshots on my custom repository

Hi Team,

I have configured S3 bucket on my cloud.elastic.co deployment. Kibana shows my bucket is connected successfully. Still, I am not able to see any snapshot backups in my bucket.

Following is the attachment

Could you please help?

Did you run a _snapshot call then?

Yes, I did run the GET /_snapshot I see my repository listed.

  "found-snapshots" : {
    "type" : "s3",
    "settings" : {
      "client" : "elastic-internal-XXXXXXXXXXXXXX",
      "base_path" : "snapshots/XXXXXXXXXXXXXX",
      "server_side_encryption" : "true",
      "compress" : "true",
  "my-snapshot" : {
    "type" : "s3",
    "settings" : {
      "bucket" : "elastic-search-logs",
      "region" : "ap-south-1",
      "compress" : "true"

But snapshots are stored in the found-snapshots repository only not mine :frowning:.

Am I doing something incorrect?

I meant did you explictly ran a backup? Everything that you describe is expected to me.

The automatic backups are ran in found-snapshots. If you want to run another backup on your repo, then call the _snapshot API to backup the data you want.

Hi David,

It makes sence, there are no automatic backups for the customized repository.

Thank you very much.
