In this step, we will generate a unique API Token on Vultr that will allow us to automate Vultr snapshots from SimpleBackups dashboard.

Obtain Vultr API credentials

  1. Go to https://my.vultr.com/settings/#settingsapi,

  2. Click API

  3. White-list SimpleBackups IP addresses or allow access from all IPv4

  4. Then click Copy API Key to Clipboard

Afterwards, create a new provider on SimpleBackups with your Vultr API Key by going to the snapshot creation section and click Connect a new provider as shown.

Select Vultr from the Provider dropdown list, enter a name for your Vultr account, then paste the Token we obtained in the previous step and click save provider.
