Job Configuration Change Tracking

Previous page Next page Print this Topic

Table of contents

The report provides information on Veeam Backup & Replication job configuration changes performed within the reporting period, and shows the exact time when changes were made and users who performed these changes.

Description

Veeam Backup & Replication jobs can be configured in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager web portal, using PowerShell or REST API. In large environments with multiple backup administrators it is often hard to tell who changed job settings, when and what was changed.

The report helps you track job modifications, identify who and when made changes to job configuration, and thus simplify troubleshooting.

noteNote

To run the Job Configuration Change Tracking report, you need to have the Veeam Management Pack installed.
