RESTful APIs v3

  • Date format in "/licensing/reports/" GET request has been changed to “yyyy-MM”.  
  • Report generation parameters have been simplified for licensing/reports/ methods: report interval is used instead of report generation date.

 
Resolved issues:

 
UI
  • "Protected computers" and "Protected VMs" widgets in the Overview tab do not account for the default RPO period of 30 days.  
  • Filtering by company/reseller name does not work on the Failover Plans tab. 
  • When using “Select All” checkbox on the Backup Jobs -> Computers tab, job actions are applied to all managed Agents regardless of selected filters. 
  • Under certain conditions, the "Unrecognized Guid format" error message is displayed on the Companies tab.
  • Under certain conditions, “Object reference not set to an instance of an object” error message is displayed on the Backup Jobs tab. 
Server
  • Under certain conditions, the Veeam Service Provider Console service fails to start. 
Usage Reporting 
  • If a company is removed from the configuration, error message “Usage data for sites <Site name> was not included in this report due to a data collection failure. Please collect usage details and report correct numbers manually in order to stay compliant with licensing rules.” is displayed in the usage report. 
  • Usage Report generation fails if there are several Veeam Backup & Replication servers with the same installation ID. 
  • Usage Report shows incorrect data if there are several Veeam Backup & Replication servers with the same database instance ID. 
  • Usage Report always shows “Standard” license edition when using Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.
Monitoring
  • “Immediate backup copy job state” alarm is triggered for deleted VMs.
  • “Workstation/Server agent backups stored in cloud repository” alarms may be triggered incorrectly. Veeam Backup & Replication v10 CP2 installation is required.

  • Under certain conditions, /v2/backupRepositories get method returns incorrect "freeSpace" data.
