|System Backups / Understanding the Automatic Backups|
Once automatic backups are configured, you may choose to transfer the backups to another location for storage using Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).
SFTP public key authentication is a client authentication method often employed for automated file transfers, such as a Vocera system backup file transfer to a storage location.
In order for the SFTP transaction to authorize correctly, the public key on the Vocera Platform must first be stored in the authorized_keys file on the remote server where the backup is intended to be stored.
In the Vocera Platform Web Console, first download the public key found on the Vocera Platform, then save the public key in the authorized_keys file on the remote storage server.
Finally, configure the SFTP Backup settings in Automatic Backups to enable the transfer method for system backup files.
