To help integrate your custom backup solutions with Backup Radar quickly, we have developed a standardized format for backup report emails and attachments to follow.
The email subject must start with
Backup Report CSV or
Backup CSV Report and the email must have a single .csv / .zip file attachment. Only the first CSV attachment to an email (or the first CSV file in the first ZIP attachment) will be parsed. All content in the email body will be ignored - Backup Radar will only analyze the first attachment.
Within the .csv file, the following column headers are required: Device, Status, Backup Date
The following column headers are optional: Job, Client and Data Size
The result statuses available for use and their mappings can be seen in the below table:
|Status in CSV||Status in Backup Radar|
|"Success", "Successful", "Finished", "Normal"||Success|
|"Failure", "Failed", "Error", "Fatal"||Failure|
Please note: All headers are case sensitive (ex. only
Device is correct,
DEVICE will not be accepted) and if the value in the Job column is null, we will use "Backup Report" as the Job Name.
An example of the CSV file can be seen below:
