VM restore point type increment or full

Veeam Logoby myoungEdge » Wed Jul 15, 2015 2:30 pm

I need to report on backup task sessions for VMs. I can get most of what I need using a query with type BackupTaskSession. I'm also looking to pull the restore point type of Increment or Full. I can see that data on the Backup Enterprise Manager by going to the VMs tab and clicking on the restore points link in a row, but I can't seem to find the same data in the API. Can someone shed some light on this. Thanks in advance for any help.

Backup session has a reference to the parent backup job session, which in turn has a reference to Restore Point entity. Among the parameters of latter you can find one called PointType that contains information you're looking for.

v.Ermin - Thanks for your response. That helped. It's the vmRestorePoints entity reference link that I needed. I don't know how I missed that before.

No problem. While trying to discover available APIs the following resources might be useful: Help Center, EM web client. Thanks.
