MySQL Workbench offers a MySQL Enterprise Backup GUI interface, and supports MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.6.0 and above. It is listed in the Management Navigator tab for a MySQL connection. There are two MySQL Enterprise Backup related sections in the Navigator:
Online Backup: Sets a backup profile that
what should be backed up,
where the backup should be stored, and
when (the frequency) MySQL should be backed
Backup Recovery: Restores the MySQL server to a specific point in time, typically by restoring a backup that was created by the Online Backup feature in MySQL Workbench.
The MySQL Enterprise Backup configuration is located on the MySQL server, and not locally. This information includes the MySQL Enterprise Backup configuration backup profiles, job scheduling, backup operations, and data. This also means that the backup operations are executed with (or without) MySQL Workbench running.
