Device backups are similar to existing backups in other Itential applications. They provide a reference point of a device's configuration at a given point in time. On the Backups page, the card layout shows all the backups that have been created for various devices on the platform. The details on each backup are unique to each device. Each backup card will show information that further delineates the history of the device's configuration. From this page, filtering, sorting, pagination and batch deletion actions are available.
