Check /etc/openstack-dashboard/

There you should find the option block 'OPENSTACK_CINDER_FEATURES', you have to enable backup, to show this option in the dashboard.

OPENSTACK_CINDER_FEATURES = { 'enable_backup': True,}

Volume Backup Management Functionality is disabled in Horizon Dashboard by default, You have to enable the backup options in /etc/openstack-dashboard/local_settings file by following:-

OPENSTACK_CINDER_FEATURES = { 'enable_backup': True,}

After that restart the httpd service. Now the "Volume Backup" Tab would be displayed next to "Volume Snapshots" Tab.
