Notification Settings

You can specify notification settings for the job if you have selected the Managed by backup server mode at the Job Mode step of the wizard.

To specify notification settings for the backup job:

  1. Click Advanced at one of the following steps of the wizard:
  • Local Storage — if you have selected to save backup files on a local storage of a Veeam Agent computer.
  • Shared Folder — if you have selected to save backup files in a network shared folder.
  • Storage — if you have selected to save backup files in a Veeam backup repository.
  1. Click the Notifications tab.
  2. Select the Send SNMP notifications for this job check box if you want to receive SNMP traps when the job completes successfully.

SNMP traps will be sent if you specify global SNMP settings in Veeam Backup & Replication and configure software on recipient's machine to receive SNMP traps. For more information, see the Specifying SNMP Settings section in Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide at: https://www.veeam.com/documentation-guides-datasheets.html.

  1. Select the Send email notifications to the following recipients check box if you want to receive notifications about the job completion status by email. In the field below, specify recipient’s email address. You can enter several addresses separated by a semicolon.

Email notifications will be sent if you configure global email notification settings in Veeam Backup & Replication. For more information, see the Configuring Global Email Notification Settings section in Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide at: https://www.veeam.com/documentation-guides-datasheets.html.

  1. You can choose to use global notification settings or specify custom notification settings.
  • To receive a typical notification for the job, select Use global notification settings. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will apply to the job global email notification settings specified for the backup server. For more information, see the Configuring Global Email Notification Settings section in Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide at: https://www.veeam.com/documentation-guides-datasheets.html.
  • To configure a custom notification for the job, select Use custom notification settings specified below. You can specify the following notification settings:
  • In the Subject field, specify a notification subject. You can use the following variables in the subject: %Time% (completion time), %JobName%, %JobResult%, %VmCount% (number of VMs in the job) and %Issues% (number of VMs in the job that have been processed with the Warning or Failed status).
  • Select the Notify on success, Notify on warning and/or Notify on error check boxes to receive email notification if the job completes successfully, fails or completes with a warning.
  • Select the Suppress notifications until the last retry check box to receive a notification about the final job status. If you do not enable this option, Veeam Backup & Replication will send one notification per every job retry.
