[Feature Request] Fix notification levels

Veeam Logoby Handynet » Fri Jul 15, 2016 11:07 am 2 people like this post

One annoyance our clients using Veeam face is the repeat notifications of: "[Success] License key has been auto updated"

Every time we add a new client, they have to filter these notifications, and we hear about it. It sounds silly, but when license auto updating is enabled, they can easily see more of these than legitimate error notifications, and so their support teams get lost in the noise.

Disabling success notifications does not stop this, and disabling support contract and product update notifications will not either.

While this seems squarely in the territory of 'bug' (notification you can't disable through any means), we have been asked to submit a feature request about this. Please let us know if this can be done.

Hi Handy,

Just to clarify - you would like to stop license update notifications for your backup server or for the client backup servers managed by you? Also, not sure I fully understand what you mean by saying "Every time we add a new client, they have to filter these notifications".

Thanks!

Hello,

It would be great if you could turn off license update notifications. Right now there is no option to do so.

>>Also, not sure I fully understand what you mean by saying "Every time we add a new client, they have to filter these notifications".

It means that we have to go to the mail server that is being used by Veeam for SMTP to send notifications and create a rule that discards these messages. Basically, we only want a notification to be sent is the license update fails.

Please ignore the verbiage about clients, it is irrelevant. THe primary issue is that Veeam does not give you full control over what types of notifications are sent from the system.

Was this ever resolved?
I'm suddenly getting hourly emails from Veeam with this subject line: [Success] License key has been auto updated

Getting license update notifications on hourly basis sounds strange; might be worth reaching our support team for further investigation. Thanks.

I would also like the ability to turn off the [Success] License key has been auto updated email notifications.
Any update on if/when this may be added?

Do you also get those notifications hourly? Typically, it should happen only upon successful license update - once a month or so, depending on licensing terms.

I have the same exact issue. Every hour of the day I receive an email with the subject: "[Success] License key has been auto updated". I do not want to filter email so this notification goes to junk/clutter. I would prefer to change the update notification options/frequency. It is quiet annoying.

Bill, please contact our technical team to review the logs and see why you have these notifications arriving every hour.

@Eremin - I do not get them hourly no. At what frequency is normal for these to update?
Any idea if we will be able to turn off the success notification with a later update?

I do not get them hourly no.

I'm wondering on what basis the notification is generated (if not hourly)?

At what frequency is normal for these to update?

Generally, once a month or so, depending on frequency with which license gets updated (think about planned license extension and so on).

Any idea if we will be able to turn off the success notification with a later update?

Currently there are no plans, but thank you for the feedback.

This is a daily nuisance for us as we're an MSP providing these services to our customer on a rental license so it frequently gets updated. How do we vote this feature up?

Its not very consistent, however I have received multiple notifications for the same server in a month. In some cases 5+ notification in this month alone.

Please let us investigate this by opening a support case, as this is not normal to receive more than 1 notification per month at most.
