This article describes improved Veeam Availability Console v3 RESTful API functionality that may retrieve different data compared to previous versions.

Cause

  • /Jobs: LastRun or EndTime now returns 00:00:00.0000000 UTC, January 1, 0001 if the value is not populated in UI
  • /HardwarePlans: memoryQuota now correctly returns '0' with memoryQuotaUnits set to "Unlimited" if the quota is unlimited
  • /BackupResources: backupRepositories now returns a proper link to a tenant's cloud repository
  • /BackupResources: usedStorageQuota now always returns correct values
  • /Computers: destinationFreeSpace now returns '0' when subtenant quota or policy is defined
  • Deserialization failure now returns a proper response in the following format: List<ResponseResult>
  • Some resources' IDs may change after the upgrade. It is recommended to request all data anew
  • The following resources are now considered legacy and may retrieve incorrect data:
    /BackupLicenses: licensedVMs, usedVMs, newVMs; /CloudLicenses: licensedVMs, usedVMs, newVMs
