Scheduled S3 AWS Backups dont work, on demand only


I was part of the beta and still have the same problem. When I backup "all resources" it does not backup my s3 buckets. When I specifically select s3 in my backup plan it still does not work. However, on demand backup of s3 works fine. How do I backup my s3 buckets with everything else on the same schedule?

  • bump - still doesnt work

  • Using tags does work with S3 resources, but without tags it doesn't seem to run.

In addition to the resource assignment that selects all S3 buckets, add one that specifically selects each bucket using the following steps. That way when the select all S3 buckets resource assignment is working, it will include any future buckets.

  1. In the AWS Console, open the backup plan
  2. Select assign resources
  3. Provide a name for the resource assignment
  4. Select include specific resource types
  5. Under select specific resource types, select S3
  6. For bucket name, uncheck all buckets and individually select each bucket
  7. Select assign resources

Alternatively add a resource assignment using tags to selects all the buckets.

Update 7 March 2022

It appears like select all S3 buckets in a resource assignment is now working.

  • I believe I did this before but cant confirm if I individually selected or did all. I am deleting the s3 resource assignment again and will make sure to individually select the buckets. Will let you know how it goes!

  • Individually selecting buckets seems to do the trick
