curl command to check if an online backup is completed successfully.


Level 1

I know the backup progress txt file is one way to confirm it, but I am wondering if there is another way more reliable, not just see if there is an ongoing backup, but really see if the backup job is completed and completed successfully.

Hi @mh158 ,

Please check below command

curl -s -u "admin:admin" http://localhost:4502/system/console/jmx/com.adobe.granite:type=Repository | grep -ie 'BackupInProgress\|BackupProgress\|BackupWasSuccessful' | sed -e "s/<[-a-zA-Z=\'?.\{\}&;:\/, ]*>/ /g" | sed -e 's/^ *//g' | sed 's/ */ /g'

Additionally, you may track it through backup console here: 


where a progress bar will indicate the progress of the backup.

For more details please refer [0].


Hope that helps!

Thank you, Santosh.


I made a curl command to check related values and tested on AEM 6.5 with Service Pack 6.5.8.


curl -s -u "admin:admin" http://localhost:4502/system/console/jmx/com.adobe.granite:type=Repository | grep -ie 'BackupInProgress\|BackupProgress\|BackupWasSuccessful' | sed -e "s/<[-a-zA-Z=\'?.\{\}&;:\/, ]*>/ /g" | sed -e 's/^ *//g' | sed 's/ */ /g'


Here is the output.


BackupInProgress false
BackupProgress 0
BackupWasSuccessful true


I think this serves my purpose.
