Enhancement request - query last successfull backup

Postby speciall » Tue May 26, 2009 3:23 pm

Platform : ALL
OS Verion : ALL
Product : OBS
Product Version : 5.5.1.0
Descriptions : info page in the admin with "last successful backup"
Resaons : I want to chech on a regular base if there are any accounts that are haveing problems. Now I have to browse trough all users and see the reports
Keywords : last succesful backup, status of backup, reporting


I reguarly check if there are any accounts failing to backup correctly, and further more if there are specific backup sets having problems for certain accounts. I would like to view this on one page so I get a quick idea if everything is running fine.
Now I have to browse trough all users reports to see when the last successful backup was, this is very time consuming.

You can do what we're doing which is use the API's to dump out the status of all backup jobs, and then present them in a web page... ListBackupJobStatus is the API to use.

You should be able to pull it out yourself using the existing API's. Below is a screenshot of part of our system that we've put together using VBscript to extract the data.
