This command requests that Juju creates a backup of its state and prints the backup’s unique ID. You may provide a note to associate with the backup. By default, the backup archive and associated metadata are downloaded without keeping a copy remotely on the controller.

Use --no-download to avoid getting a local copy of the backup downloaded at the end of the backup process.

Use --keep-copy option to store a copy of backup remotely on the controller. Use --verbose to see extra information about backup.

To access remote backups stored on the controller, see juju download-backup.
