Query parameters



Optional. An optional request ID to identify requests. Specify a unique request ID so that if you must retry your request, the server will know to ignore the request if it has already been completed. The server will guarantee that for at least 60 minutes after the first request.

For example, consider a situation where you make an initial request and the request times out. If you make the request again with the same request ID, the server can check if original operation with the same request ID was received, and if so, will ignore the second request. This prevents clients from accidentally creating duplicate commitments.

The request ID must be a valid UUID with the exception that zero UUID is not supported (00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000).



Optional. If set, the backend validates the request, but doesn't actually execute it.



Optional. The current etag of the Backup. If an etag is provided and does not match the current etag of the Backup, deletion will be blocked and an ABORTED error will be returned.
