How to configure backup reports

At the end of a backup Job, you can configure Xen Orchestra in order to receive a backup reports directly by email, on Slack or on Mattermost. It's up to you.

Email notification

Step-by-step

  1. On the "settings/plugins" view you have to activate and configure the "Backup-reports" plugin.

  2. Still on the plugins view, you also have to configure the "transport-email" plugin.

  3. Once it's done, you can now create your backup job. On the line "report" you can choose the situation in wish you want to receive an email (always, never or failure).

    Note: You can also modify existing backup jobs and change the behaviour of the report system.

XMPP nofications

You can be notified via XMPP after the backup task is finished (scheduled "full backup", "snapshots" or "disaster recovery").

To configure it, 2 steps in the plugin section (in "Settings"):

  1. add a list of recipient(s) for the notifications (in the plugin "backup-reports" and for XMPP)
  2. set the XMPP server

That's it: your next scheduled jobs will be recap in a message:
