I found this thread after experiencing the issue (bug) where turning off the "successful" notification on a replication job but leaving the other notifications checked does not work... I still get the successful emails. Is there an ETA on this fix?

Hello Glyn, Christoph,

The change in the notification logic has been postponed to the next releases.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

This is really disappointing. It was (believe it or not) the primary fix/feature I was waiting for in patch 2. This bug might not affect data integrity and thus seem minor to Veeam, but it's a big PITA for those of us that have multiple jobs that run hourly and we only want to be notified when there is a warning/failure. Now I guess the best timeframe I can hope for is the fall?

Hello Jim,
There is a workaround I can suggest. Your goal can be achieved by use of Veeam ONE. You can disable global notifications in VBR and enable related alarm notifications in Veeam One. For instance set Replication Job State alarm to notify you about warning and error only and Backup Job State/ Backup Copy Job State/etc. to notify you in any case.
Or you can check VBR global notifications in only for Warnings and Errors and set Veeam One notifications for desired types of jobs to send you notification in a case of success as well.
Not that elegant solution, but it will work.
Discussed improvement is still to be implemented in next VBR releases though. Thanks!

Hello,
Another workaround which seems to work for me:
- disable "On Success" in global settings
- configure backup jobs with custom notification "Notify on success"
- configure replication jobs using global notification

Thanks for your input, reiso22.
It should also work, however just like in the workaround I described above it will take significant effort if there are lots of jobs.
Another workaround is to make mail server filter notifications containing "jobname" and "success".

So do we have to wait for v9 for this little fix? I just updated to v8 U3 and am having the same problem. Thanks!

Don't hold your breath. They seem to have no intention of fixing this. Last I heard the "fix" had been shelved because they intend to completely re-architect the notification system. So we wait. And wait.

As far as I know this should be addressed in v9.

Foggy is correct. That should be a part of the upcoming release.
@Pufferdude, since that is not a bug, but more a feature request, we don`t include it to the minor releases aka updates.
Thanks!

[MERGED] Notification only Backup Job

Veeam Logoby adrianIDC » Mon Nov 09, 2015 9:36 am

Within my console Veeam B & R I have multiple Backup Job ( 5 [data , app , dc ... etc] )
He is currently configured to send an e- mail for each backup job ( succes , fail, warning ) .

I wish I could set it up to notify me ONLY by e -mail for a backup job (DATA).

Thanks team!

What if you uncheck email notifications for all, but one job?
