Feature request: e-mail reports per organization

Post by peturarna » Aug 24, 2017 2:15 pm 2 people like this post

In the next version we would like to see the possibility to send individual e-mail reports per organization or backup set. As a service provider this feature is a must have, so each customer can get reports for only his backup sets.

Agree with this, it's a must have as SP. I really hope this gets added.

We've been thinking about sending the reports to a mailbox and create email filters, so our customers can get their backup reports.

Thanks Gert.

Any change you also can let me know what kind of data you would like to see in that report per organization?

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike

Sorry for the late respons, I was not subscribed on this thread.

I think the report you get from the global configuration is almost sufficient, the only 2 thing I'd liked to have have changed is the:

- Remove the "Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 1.5.0.1309" in the bottom of the report
- And add another column to the right of "Name" that shows the actual email address of the email account

More functionality for multi tenancy would be able to configure "Folders" and "Authentication" per backup job as well

Regards.
Gert

Thanks Gert for the additional information. Gives me more food for thought on the reporting part ;-)

Hi again Mike

Something else that is a must, is that every tenant / backup jobs gets split into their own backup folder, instead
of it all just being in one single file per year (from what I can see from the files on the repo)

A other reason this is important is, if a contract ends with a customer and we must delete their files, right now it doesn't seem possible,
because it is all stacked into one big file (the .adb file)

Gert,

The multi-tenancy is based on creating a repository per tenant. In that case that scenario is perfect possible. Pointing users jobs to the same repository is not advised because you can't ensure multi-tenancy at that point

Hi Mike

It just seems a bit silly, that I should take my same repo (D-drive) and add it again, but point it to an other folder for every tenant i wish to do backup for?

Thats a lot of unnecessary configuration. All the settings for the tenant should be do on the backup job (same for the retention of the backup)

It would be nice if Veeam for Office365 used a bit more of the logic/style that Veeam Backup & Replication has :)

Gert,

I can understand it from your point of view, but B&R works with flat files while VBR works with a running database as a repository. Both concepts are different, just like the retention is achieved differently. In the end, it is also the difference between image-based snapshots and application data protection :-)
