Executing script or binary for alarm notification

Post by evilaedmin » Jul 31, 2019 7:58 pm

Hello,

Does VeeamONE support executing a script or binary in place of email for alarm notifications? We use an operations service where the most effective way of sending alarms is posting to their HTTP API.

Hi Hannes,

Thanks for showing this! I believe I was thinking of vCenter Alarm Actions when I asked, where the script is executed and has access to environment variables which define the alarm, so for example we can send a HTTP POST event to our Notification service with a binary and the binary can reference the alarm information (vCenter Alarms) by use of environment variables.

Looking at the remediation actions documentation, no such similar functionality exists in VeeamOne?

Hello,
I'm not sure what the question is. Is it about passing variables to a script? If yes, which one do you want to pass?

What I show above in the screenshot is "(remediation) actions". There are some pre-defined remediation actions e.g. for "Latest snapshot age" alarm which has "delete snapshot". But you can also use a script instead of the pre-defined "delete snapshot" and "delete all snapshots".

Best regards,
Hannes

Hi Eugene,
Here is a description of Veeam ONE remediation actions.
Which alarms resolutions would you like to automate? We may think of the new predefined remediation actions.
