Add backup mode (Full/Incr) filter to Tape-Out functionality of ARS to HotFix 8115 (7-2019)

Add backup mode (Full/Incr) filter to Tape-Out functionality of ARS to HotFix 8115 (7-2019)

The cu wants to filter by the mode of the original backup in order to exclude incr objects and only pick up full objects for copy to tape.

I know this is a stretch, but can you tell me if the original backup mode (full/incr) is part of the metadata imported by the foreign cell manager media session triggered by ARS? If the original backup mode is included as a property of ARS-imported objects, how practical would it be to make a change to DP business logic and GUI code to add a source selection filter ("Full objects only" checkbox, perhaps?) enabling the exclusion of non-full objects?

Hello @SDuchene,

This is a great idea and there is one related item in Idea Exchange already.

https://community.microfocus.com/t5/Data-Protector-Idea-Exchange/Object-Copy-to-support-quot-Latest-Full-quot/idi-p/1638646

Being able to select only the "latest full" would be very useful to many customers, also in single cell environments, where Object Copy to tape is a requirement.
