As part of our disaster recovery plans we're taking backups of Confluence, Postgres in the backend.
Using Postgres dump to dump the file and restore it on a separate DB.
Copy all the installation and home directory files from the Confluence production to the replica.
We'd like to schedule a restore of the most recent backup and verify it's a 'good' restore
Provided we are able to bring up the Confluence replica, What can we do to verify the restored Confluence
Any things provided by Confluence which tells me the application has no corruption or restore issues ?
I'm not aware that Confluence has a self-check process. I personally highly trust the global restore because it is a very low-level export/import of the database. The per-space import is much more complicated (hence may introduce errors) but the global restore is great. Here are things you could manually check:
I don't think you should test every single Confluence feature; If users and applinks are properly restored, everything else should work smoothly.
