Hi Umesh,

You can specify the time period for your request in the filter parameter as we discussed.
Do you trigger the requests manually?
Query will not accept some variable as a value of EndTime. I believe the easiest way is to trigger the request with some script. The script will have to calculate EndTime, create a query and send the request.
(For example, you trigger the request each 24 hours and fill EndTime with <now()-24h> value).

Thanks!

Thanks Natalia, When i mention the todays date, it works , however i do not still understand how i can mention 24 hours time in query. Since i have to run the script daily. I do not want to mention particular date every time manually. Any explanation for mentioning 24 hours time will be helpful for me.
Thanks..

Hi Umesh,

As Natalia mentioned, you'll need to calculate datetime primarily to the request. Use Date built-in class, setHours() method and then string interpolation to insert the value you calculated into the query. The syntax per language may differ, but algorithm is the same.
For Javascript I do something like that:

Code: Select all

const request = require('request');
let sessionId = 'YjRkMmRlMTctZjBmMy00MzdkLTlhMmQtZjEyODBjMjI5ZjEx';
let currentDate = new Date();
currentDate.setHours(-24);
let dateString = currentDate.toISOString();
let hostAddress = 'em-host';
let url = `https://${hostAddress}/api/query?type=BackupJobSession&format=Entities&sortAsc=name&pageSize=15&page=1&filter=EndTime>="${dateString}";Result==failed`;
let options = {
  'method': 'GET',
  'url': url,
  'headers': {
    'Accept': 'application/json',
    'Cookie': `X-RestSvcSessionId=${sessionId}`
  }
};
request(options, function (error, response) {
  if (error) throw new Error(error);
  console.log(response.body);
});
Thanks,
Oleg

So this thing will work for searching for last 24hour data:-

timeend=$(date --date="-1 days" +%FT%TZ)

veeamEMUrl="https://YourVeeamUrl:9398/api/query?for ... t==Success"

And it will send response as :-

"EndTimeUTC": "2021-01-29T03:30:56.16Z",
"Result": "Success",
"EndTimeUTC": "2021-01-29T03:28:48.813Z",
"Result": "Success",
"EndTimeUTC": "2021-01-29T03:23:50.507Z",
"Result": "Success",
