Notification Settings for Backup Policy

You can specify email notification settings for the backup policy. If you enable notification settings, Veeam Backup & Replication will send a daily email report with backup policy statistics to a specified email address. The report contains cumulative statistics for backup job sessions performed for the last 24-hour period on computers to which the backup policy is applied.

Notification Settings for Backup Policy Note:

Email reports with backup policy statistics 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 the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

After you enable notification settings for the backup policy, Veeam Backup & Replication will send reports with the backup policy statistics to email addresses specified in global email notification settings and email addresses specified in the backup policy settings.

To specify notification settings for the backup policy:

  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 daily e-mail report to the following recipients check box and specify a recipient’s email address in the field below. You can enter several addresses separated by a semicolon.
  3. You can choose to use global notification settings or specify custom notification settings.
  • To receive a typical notification for the backup policy, select Use global notification settings. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will apply to the backup policy global email notification settings specified for the backup server. Veeam Backup & Replication will send the email report containing backup policy statistics at 8:00 AM daily.
  • To configure a custom notification for the backup policy, select Use custom notification settings specified below. You can specify the following notification settings:
  • In the Send report at field, specify the time when Veeam Backup & Replication must send the email notification for the backup policy. Veeam Backup & Replication will sent the report daily at the specified time.

You can use the following variables in the subject: %Time% (completion time), %JobName%, %JobResult%, %VmCount% (number of computers in the backup policy) and %Issues% (number of computers in the backup policy 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.
