Hi all, 

I am looking for a way to automate tape changes, and I’m trying to find a report/workflow that can list all scratch/full tapes in a library, alongside with scratch media that are exported. 

I am already testing some workflows, but the main problem is that I cannot find the correct operation to list the tapes in a specific Media group or in a specific library. 

I searched on the documentation as well but couldn’t find it, does someone alredy know the correct operation that I need to perform? 

Hope you can understand my writing. 

Thank you all in advance.

Your writing is fantastic, and very clear :blush:   Welcome to the community!

I think Vault Tracker is what you are looking for:

Vault Tracker can manage the export/import timing and conditions for your tapes (manually or automatically).

It’s not so much a method to list out the barcodes, but (even better) a mechanism to manage that whole process for you.

Take a look and let me know if this fits your needs!

Hi Mike, 

I can’t thank you enough for this tip. 

I think that this is exactly the feature that I am looking for. 

How ever, we don’t have such license. If I can be honest, I figured it out after two days of me trying to create a vault tracker policy, and couldn’t find almost anything of what the documentation says. 

This thread is resolved!

Have a nice day.
