Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
RESTful API Reference


The filter parameter lets you filter the query results to limit a set of displayed items.

By default, the query results are not filtered: Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager displays all items as a list. Using the filter parameter, you can display only those items that match the necessary criteria.

The filter component in the query string has the following format:


where the filter criteria are specified as the "field=value" pairs.

For example, using the query below, you can get a backup job with the Exchange Backup name:


GET http://localhost:9399/api/query?type=job&filter=name=="Exchange Backup"



200 Success
