GET /api/v1/jobs - only list backup jobs

Post by Cragdoo »

I am missing something, but API call GET /api/v1/jobs only lists Backup jobs and not BackupCopy jobs??

Hi Craig,

Yes, that's the limitation for VBR REST v1.0-rev1 - only backup jobs for VMware vSphere infrastructure. Mentioned in the note in the link you shared and also implied in the available values of EJobType for typeFilter parameter. Did you find it unclear or confusing? Should we add something to the documentation?

Thanks,
Oleg

It may be more clear to state it as "In the current version, the REST API supports a JobType of Backup, and job objects of VMware VMs only."

I've sent this feedback to the docs team already.

I agree with Joe, better to make a clear statement,rather than hide it away in filters or options
