Want to restore a single table to a specified state.
Have already used the tiup br restore table --db --table command to restore the specified table from snapshot data. How to record the data after restoring this snapshot from the log file?
Checked the parameters of the br restore point command, but did not see the description of the --db --table parameters. Does this command support restoring specified databases and tables?

Check out this post, the issue is similar: How to use BR to restore incremental data of a specified database at a specified point in time (PITR) - TiDB Q&A Community (asktug.com)

PITR recovery should be a full database recovery, and you cannot specify to recover just one. Choose one of the parameters.
To restore a single table, use the tiup br restore table command.

Thank you for the reply.
Are there any other solutions to restore the data of a single table to a specified time?

The tiup br restore table command should only be able to restore data from snapshot files, right?
After the snapshot is restored, how can this part of the data be restored directly to the next snapshot?

Incremental backups also require a full recovery. Let’s see what other ideas the experts have.

I didn’t see any relevant information, it probably isn’t supported yet.
