how to backup databases inside Azure data explorer ?

it's a little bit weird I couldn't find any solution for backup of the databases inside the ADX!
I've also seen Disaster recovery and Data export topics.

    Hello @Ali Asadi ,

    Welcome to the MS Q&A platform.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to backup the databases inside Azure Data Explorer.

    Appreciate if you could share the feedback on our feedback channel. Which would be open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows our product teams to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and gives insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

    If your intention is to recover the database in case of any accidental deletions, you could mitigate the deletions through disaster configurations :

    • Active-active-active configuration
    • Active-Active configuration
    • Active-Hot standby configuration
    • On-demand data recovery cluster configuration

    For more details, refer to Business continuity and disaster recovery overview - Disaster recovery configurations.

    Also, you cannot recover a cluster or database in case of any accidental deletions until you put a lock at resource level.

    For more details, refer to Lock resources to prevent unexpected changes

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
