Deleting Backup Job

In this article

    You can delete a backup job configured in Veeam Agent for Linux. When you delete a backup job, backup files created by this job remain intact on the backup repository.

    You can delete backup jobs in one of the following ways:

    • With the Veeam Agent for Linux control panel
    • With the Veeam Agent for Linux command line interface

    Deleting Backup Job with Control Panel

    You can delete a backup job with the Veeam Agent control panel.

    To delete a backup job:

    1. Launch the Veeam Agent control panel with the veeam or veeamconfig ui command.
    2. Press the 'c' key to open the Select job to configure dialog window or the 's' key to open the Select job to start dialog window.
    3. Select the necessary backup job in the list and press Delete.
    4. In the displayed notification window, make sure that the Yes button is selected and press Enter.

    Deleting Backup Job with Command Line Interface

    You can delete a backup job with the Veeam Agent command line interface. To delete a backup job, use the following command:

    veeamconfig job delete --name <job_name>

    or

    veeamconfig job delete --id <job_id>

    where:

    • <job_name> — name of the backup job that you want to delete.
    • <job_id> — ID of the backup job that you want to delete.

    For example:

    $ veeamconfig job delete --name SystemBackup

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
