    It would be great to have an end point in the API to request and retrieve a backup asynchronically.

     

    The reason behind this is that today the backups are manually downloaded and uploaded to a drive. And I'd like to have to automated.

     

    I imaging 2 end points: request and retrieve a backup. Sending a request to Samanage to schedule a backup and then check out in a x amount of time if the backup is ready via the retrieve backup, once it's ready, download it and place it wherever we need.

     

    Do you guys think this could be a good idea?

    What problem will this feature solve?:
