How to recover a deleted Azure Postgresql server?

TechOps Team rdcosta 0 Reputation points


About 2 days ago we deleted an Azure Postgresql server by mistake, not remembering tat it was used by a legacy service that we have.

Is there a way to recover that server? I today already followed the steps in the support guide by sending an HTTP request with the server ID and time of deletion, but the server does not appear on the list of servers.

Is there a mail contact where I can post my question directly to Support?

Thanks to you all.

    TechOps Team rdcosta If you are using Azure PostgreSQL single server, please follow the instructions listed here: Restore a dropped Azure Database for PostgreSQL server | Microsoft Docs to recover the deleted single PostgreSQL server.

    Please note that you can only restore a server within five days of deletion. If you're trying to restore a server after five days, an error is expected since the backup file cannot be found. In this scenario, you cannot open a support ticket for assistance.

    If it is for an Azure PostgreSQL flexible server it's not possible, you will need to file a support ticket for our team to recover from the backend.

    Please let us know.
