    Hi @qasimidl ,

    You can back up a service application by using the SharePoint Central Administration website or Microsoft PowerShell (Please click the link to view the detail steps).

    You can back up a SharePoint Server farm by using the SharePoint Central Administration website, Microsoft PowerShell, or SQL Server tools.

    Note: If you are backing up for the first time, you must use the Full option. You must perform a full backup before you can perform a differential backup. Some service applications always require a full backup. For these service applications, the system performs a full backup even if you select the Differential option.
