Adjust History for Backup Job Report

Veeam Logoby bill17 » Mon May 01, 2017 3:28 pm

I searched the forum but I am not sure why can't we control the output of the B&R Job Report time frame?

If we change the history retention settings then that info is lost for good right? So if we want to just get the last 4 months for an audit report but want to keep the past year or so for our own records we are out of luck. Do we have to resort to making a backup of the B&R VM, change the history settings to run the reports we want and then revert back to the old VM with the full history?

We own Veeam ONE but I do not see the same reporting output that you get when you select Report from within B&R.

Powershell scripts seems like a burden when all we need is one setting added to the Report feature in B&R to control the amount of history output.

Please advise, Thanks

Hello Bill and welcome to the community!
There is a Backup Job Historical Information with backup jobs` details.
You may set desired data retention to keep the data for longer time.
Thanks!

HI, I'll have to take a deeper look into that report. I saw it as a nice overview but the report from B&R shows each VM for each run of the job, etc. which is better for a full audit.

Can we have a feature request to B&R's Report where we can set the amount of weeks as we are creating it? A simple popup once you select report for a job, that will ask you how many weeks to go back.
That would be VERY useful and quick.

thanks in advance :)

We will take you request into account, but generally B&R report shows basic information, not to crowd GUI of the backup software, while Veeam ONE is the place where you can get details for full audit.
Talking about Backup Job Historical Information report, there are drill-down reports with additional per-VM information.
Thanks!
