UniFi Cloud Key Gen2 SD Card Backups

Now that I have my UniFi Cloud Key Gen2 working, with the newest update of course, I powered it off, inserted a wiped SD card, and powered the UCKG2 back on; hopefully the UCKG2 formatted the SD card.  Logging into the Cloud Key Gen2, In the Settings > Auto Backup, I don't see where you can select what it backs up to the SD card.  I was looking to backup just the settings only.  Any ideas on how to configure just to auto backup the settings only?  Thank you.

Hello @ubiqNewb,

 

Enable autobackups and choose to make settings only backups Man Happy

Settings > Autobackups

Here is a screenshot of the Auto Backup page:

I don't see where you can choose to backup settings only.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

Hello @ubiqNewb,

 

It now creates a backup every first day of the month at 12AM.

Yes.  I understand.  What I'm looking for is what type of backup does it make?  For instance, and I know this has nothing to do with the question at hand but just a comparison, Maintenance > Backup allows you to choose settings only from the drop down menu.  That's what I'm wondering about the Auto Backup.  What type of backup does the Auto Backup create?  A settings only backup or a different type of backup?

Hello @ubiqNewb,

 

It's creating a backup with 30 days data rentention, if you want settings only change it to settings only.

Ah...it took me a minute.  I didn't realize there was a drop down menu for Data Retention Days.  That's what I was looking for, the drop down menu.  I guess my new glasses aren't working as expected Willy Nilly

 

If I were to SSH into the UCKG2, what path would I find the backups in?  Is it here:  /data/autobackup/
