Configuring user-defined events for backup jobs

When creating a backup job, NetVault Backup lets you configure user-defined events that can be raised when the job completes successfully, completes with warnings, or fails. You can use these options when you want to be notified about the completion status of individual jobs.

You can also raise user-defined events for individual backup jobs, restore jobs, report jobs, policies, and log messages. You can use various notification methods to receive notifications when the predefined or user‑defined events occur in NetVault Backup. For more information, see Using global notification methods.

You can configure the user-defined events in the Backup Advanced Options Set. Once you create a user‑defined event, you can raise it for any job or backup policy. NetVault Backup adds the user-defined events to the event class Jobs — User defined. You can then set up one or more notification methods for the event to receive notifications when the event is raised.

1
On the Advanced Options page, click Events, and configure the following settings.

Job is Successful

Type or select the event that you want to raise when the job completes successfully.

Job has Warnings

Type or select the event that you want to raise when the job completes with warnings.

Job Fails

Type or select the event that you want to raise when the job fails.
