Create a New Snapshot
Click “Create Snapshot” to create a new snapshot. A confirmation dialog appears asking for the snapshot name or brief description. This name serves only as a helpful reminder to you.

A list of tables that will go into the snapshot is generated by running

As the last step, snapshot metadata is added to the list of snapshots.
