Hello everyone,

there is some way to get a list of all jobs that are protected by specific Index Job in a Storage Policy?

I have several tapes that are not being exported.
Cross-checking the data between Index Backup Retention report and Forecast Report these taped are not being released because of an index job that is protecting backup jobs.
The problem is that I cannot find in the history of whole storage policy the jobs indicated as protected.


Thanks and regard

Hello Casp,

You can run the Index backup retention report which will show indexes that are backed up on media, as well as the backup jobs they are protecting.

Please let me know if this helped you.

Hello, thanks for your answer.

I've already run the test and that's why I was asking if there is a way to know all the Backup jobs that a particular Index job protects.

In my case in the Index backup report shows some index jobs that are protecting Backup jobs that I can't find in the storage policies copies.

Thanks and regards

Hi @casp ,

The jobs will be present on the different copies.

You can check the same job iD’s from the backup job history by specifying Backup job ID.
