A rule determines what happens when a job failure record is created in the JobR database. The rule can perform 3 key activities:
- Set the status of the failure to Ignored
- Call a JobR action
- Call a Now subflow
The rule definition includes a condition that restricts its execution e.g. set record status to ignore for records where the failure code is 51.
The system ships with 2 built-in Rules that are used for Veeam systems and they should not be altered.
Rules are executed in order of the Order property.
JobR is built to support extensibility by allowing a user to create new rules and actions that correspond to their requirements
A typical rule would be to automatically ignore certain failures which is simply the creation of a rule that sets the status to ignored if a condition is met.
Please note the importance of applying conditions. If no conditions are used, the rule will apply to every incoming job failure record.
