Ability to update from within the Application

Post by jnickell » Jan 16, 2018 6:42 pm

This question applies to both Veeam One and Veeam B&R, but is it possible that we will see a feature to allow us to 'update' from within the application.

Here's the situation that I'm trying to address:
I want to update both applications (installed on the same server).
To update I have to download both installs separately and then upload them to the server to perform the upgrades.
This becomes a real pain if I'm working remotely.

The workflow seems redundant, coming from Backup Exec, where from within the Application, I could select the option to download and install updates 'using the application'.

I was told by support that posting this question to the forums was the best way to get a feature request noticed.

Hello John and welcome to the community!
The request definitely makes sense for me. I guess the answer to "Why is it not implemented yet?" is simply "There were not many requests".
I will discuss the native update with developers.
Thanks for bringing the point!

Thanks for the great request.
Added it to the product road map.
Once you have a question, don't hesitate asking.
