Hi @kumaran_rajendran,

Welcome to MongoDB community!

MongoDB servers does not back themselves on their own they can just replicate between each other. To backup your database you need to use one of the following methods, each method has its own ways to view backup information:

Hi @kumaran_rajendran

There is no record of this stored in mongodb. So no you cannot list out a history of backups.

Hi @kumaran_rajendran,

You can though add a script to your post backup process to update the time kofthe last backup as a stored document.
