Hi Guys,,

I am working on to create a workflow to automatically re-run the failed backup jobs. I have started creating a test workflow but seems to be a complex task. Has anyone worked on a similar workflow in Commvault ?

Good afternoon.  I have not seen any workflow such as this but will ask around and see if any of my resources has.  I will update in a few days.

I have not looked into this but alerts can trigger when a backup fails, so you may be able to use that as the trigger for a workflow to run the subclient again.

This way the workflow doesnt have to poll or control the processes from start to end.

Oh there is also an API to resubmit a job given a jobID so that might be even easier

curl --location --request POST 'http://WebConsoleHostName/webconsole/api/Job/182661/action/Resubmit' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authtoken: QSDK token would be auto set after POST Login is called.' \
--data-raw ''
