Powershell to backup a CosmosDB
View CosmosDBBkup.ps1
This script will call the cosmos db migration tool with the correct parameters based
on a list of databases that need to be backed up. It depends on a json param file that
contains the list of cosmos db services that have databases that require backup.
This script has a couple of dependencies:
(1) the dt.exe that it runs (the cosmos db migration tool and we assume the associated files/dlls
in the compiled folder) needs to be locally available.
