Log doesn't show job modifier

Post by Tebinium » Jul 09, 2018 10:43 pm

G'day all!

Is there a way to show in the logs who modified a backup job? Currently it logs that the job was changed (logging levels 4 & 5 - I haven't tried 6) but it does not record who made the change. This is critical information for our environment. Ideally I'd like to drop the logging back to 4 to reduce the amount of information being logged.

If I need to log an enhancement request please let me know.

Looks like I'm setting up our Veeam ONE instance... We need this to be reported as it happens (an alert) not just in a report. Is this possible?

Hi Tebinium,

Yes, you can have VeeamONE report job changes as they happen.
Well, there is a short delay, as the data collector is running on a schedule, but the alarm will trigger in minutes.
You can then have it send an email, trigger an SNMP trap, or run an external script.

I have a VeeamONE alarm configured for this exact purpose. I don't know if I have done it 'correctly' but it works.
I get emailed when a job is modified and it tells me which job was modified and by whom - perfect for my needs.

I created a new Alarm in the 'Backup Server' node.

Code: Select all

Alarm Name: Job Modified  (can put anything here)
Rule Type: Event
Event name: *
Event text: Backup * has been modified.
Severity: Warning
Trigger after: 0
Ignore after: 0
I set the assignment to the entire Backup Infrastructure, and configured the Action I wanted (send email).
