Challenge

Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 RTM is not compatible with the previous versions of API. Some integration may not work as expected.

Cause

Update 4 has introduced new Product functionality that requires extended API and incremented the required request version to v1_4. 

Solution

The compatibility issue will be remediated in Update 4 GA.
Hotfix is available for Veeam 9.5 Update 4 RTM, please contact Veeam Support for assistance.

Alternatively, you can switch to version v1_4 with the considerations below.

The following Cloud Connect functionality requires changing request's version from v1_3 to v1_4:

  • Create, Edit tenants

The following may require changing request's content:

  • Tenant edit. GET request now returns a new tenant type block. Adding this block to PUT requests should allow functionality to work as intended:
    <TenantType>
           <StandaloneTenant>
              <TenantCredentials>
                 <Username>TENANT_NAME</Username>
              </TenantCredentials>
           </StandaloneTenant>
    </TenantType>   

    The element is described in the new XSD as follows: 

    <xs:element name="TenantType" type="CloudTenantType" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"/>

  • Task status. Complex tasks such as create/edit/delete tenant have got a new status OperationFinished which should be properly enumerated.
