Notification Settings for Backup Job
To specify notification settings for the backup job:
- At the Storage step of the wizard, click Advanced.
- Click the Notifications tab.
- 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 the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
- 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 a recipient’s email address. You can enter several addresses separated by a semicolon.

- 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.

You can use the following variables in the subject: %Time% (completion time), %JobName%, %JobResult%, %ObjectCount% (number of machines in the job) and %Issues% (number of machines in the job that have been processed with the Warning or Failed status).
- Select the Notify on success, Notify on warning and Notify on error check boxes to receive email notification if the job completes successfully, completes with a warning or fails.
