Saving Posts

In this article

    You can save backed-up Microsoft Teams posts.

    When you save posts, the request command saves posts to MSG files and places the files to a temporary folder on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server. After that, the files are transferred as application/octet-stream media to the client. To download, read or perform other actions with the octet-stream, use features of programming languages.

    Saving Posts Tip

    You can use Swagger UI to download data from the stream by clicking the Download action link in the response body. For more information, see Evaluation in Swagger UI.
