    • PENDING: This is the initial state of the restore once it is created. From this state the restore can be updated to the REQUESTING state.
    • REQUESTING: After the status is set to REQUESTING, a restore request is sent to the Backup and Restore Engine to initialize it as a new restore.
    • INITIALIZING: After the restore request is received by the Backup and Restore Engine it will update the status to INITIALIZING.
    • IN_PROGRESS: After the restore process begins the status will be updated to IN_PROGRESS.
    • FAILED: If the restore has completed with errors the status will be updated to FAILED.
    • SUCCESS: If the restore has completed without errors the status will be updated to SUCCESS.
  • is_cross_deployment_restore - Boolean - If the associated backup is being restored on a different Console with a set of new managed hosts, the condition is set to 'true'; otherwise, the condition is set to 'false'.
  • backup_id - Long - The ID of the backup associated with the restore. Once the restore completes this value will be updated to null.
  • backup_name - String - The name of the backup that was restored.
