Backup Activity Report
Updated over a week ago

Overview

Backup Activity Report provides a comprehensive list of all backup operations performed for resources of the workloads configured in the organizations. It gives insights into the status of each backup job run for each resource, based on which you can perform analysis and take corrective actions. For example, if the backup operation fails because of the exceeding quota, you may go ahead and buy additional credits based on the consumption requirements.

Hybrid Workloads Administrators can view the Backup Activity Report depending on their access privileges. If you are a Cloud-derived administrator or a Data Protection Officer, you can view the report of backup activities of your configured workloads. If you are an Organization-derived administrator, you can view the report of backup activities of workload-specific to the organizations you have access to. If you are a Group-derived administrator, you can view the report of backup activities of workloads related to the administrative groups that you manage.

Procedure

  1. Go to the Global Navigation Panel > Reports > Hybrid Workloads. The Hybrid Workloads Reports page appears.

  2. Click Backup Activity Report.

    By default, the report provides details of the backups that occurred in the last 30 days. You can apply filters to the Backup Activity Report to fetch backup data details as per your requirements. You can view the generated report, or send it through an email to the intended recipients. You can also download data in the widgets in the CSV, CSV-Summary, and PDF formats. You can sort data in the Backup Activity Details table using single or multiple columns, and rearrange columns in the table as required.


📝 Note
The report data is refreshed every two hours. The last updated time recorded for the report is displayed next to the report title. This timestamp follows the administrator’s time zone. However, the timestamps of the data fetched in the report follow the UTC time zone.
