Retention Reports

Post by vmcust » Jan 04, 2018 7:40 pm

Is there a way to produce a report similar to the canned report named Backup Copy Job GFS Backup Files but for Backup Jobs and not just Backup Copy Jobs? I noticed Report Builder is not intuitive at all. Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the community!
Backup jobs don't have GFS retention, could you elaborate on the information you are looking for?
By the way, what did you try to accomplish with the report builder?

Do you want to have a report that tracks how many restore points exist for a VM and then what is the date for restore point removal? If that's the case, then there is no similar pre-canned report today, but thanks for the FR.

As regards the report builder, then you need to look at Backup Infrastructure Custom Data instead if you want to create your own backup report.
