How to Backup Planning Analytics Workspace
Current as at PAW 2.0.68. Here are some simple instructions for backing up Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW). This is a really good idea before you perform an upgrade to PAW.
Time needed: 10 minutes.
Backing Up Planning Analytics Workspace
- Open PowerShell as an Administrator
- Navigate to the PAW installation folder of the version to be backed up (prior version if upgrading)
./scripts/backup.ps1 backupfoldername(for Windows) or
./scripts/backup.sh backupfoldername(for Linux)
If you have not entered a filename for the backup, it will be backed up into the Backups folder and will use the current date and time stamp.

Your backup will then commence and will take a number of minutes. It will stop services, back up the databases and then restart the services.
