Automated Backups (Docker)
Allow configuration of automated backups. This is not the same as adding a cron task, as this isn't an appropriate way to manage Dockerized applications.
Allow a configuration in
config.toml to turn on automated, scheduled backups. The current methods listed at https://docs.gitlab.com/omnibus/settings/backups.html are not appropriate or applicable for containerized deployments. The current suggested solution for Docker containers is to manually run
exec commands in the containers. This method is not useful for deployments on platforms like Kubernetes.
The Docker container should have a configurable way to enable regular backups that does not rely on manual intervention.
