Data Protector Reporting-Notification-EndOfSession - should offer Restore in the Session Type.

When you kick off a large restore job that takes multiple hours, it'd be nice to be able to set the EndOfSession notification, in my case Email (SMTP) format, on the Restore session type, and set it so those of us waiting on the restore will be informed exactly when it finishes.

Description from customer:

 

"We want to set up notifications for restores. Now it has been noticed that there are no notification possibilities for this "session type".
We can now neither automatically inform colleagues about their restore status via email, nor do we have any kind of restore monitoring."

Gerd,

Can you please provide more clarification on the ask? You are not getting notification when restores are complete? What kind of notification you need ?

Thanks.

Yes that is very good IDEA! You cannot configure neither Notifications nor Reports for Restore sessions.

This year we've received a lot of customer feedback that they need to restore reports and restore email notifications. Especially to restore mail notifications.

Hi @UliW_MF,

Can you please merge the votes from the two duplicate ideas with this one and re-evaluate the numbers? I think this should be easy to implement.
