Exporting Posts

You can export backed-up Microsoft Teams posts.

When you export posts, the request command exports posts to an HTML file and places this file to a temporary folder on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server. After that, the HTML file is transferred as application/octet-stream media to the client. To download, read, convert to HTML or perform other actions with the octet-stream, use features of programming languages.

Exporting Posts Tip

You can use Swagger UI to download the octet-stream file by clicking the Download action link that server returns in the response body after a successfully completed export operation. For more information, see Evaluation in Swagger UI.
