Introducing APIs for Reports

We've added APIs for reports in our common reporting framework. Now, as per your requirements, you can quickly get report data.

You can build integrations to obtain specific data for various use cases. For example, you can:

  • Track the status of workloads periodically and trigger automated responses using third-party apps or custom scripts. For example, you can create a ticket to inform an administrator if backups fail beyond a certain percentage on a specific day.
  • Keep a close eye on critical activities such as failed Restore jobs. This visibility allows you to proactively address any issues that may arise.
  • Run narrowed-down diagnostics using filters to provide evidence during audits.
  • Build personalized reports or a view to monitor all your data.

With these new APIs, you'll have more flexibility and control over your reporting.

For more information, see Getting Started with Reports API.

Note: With this release, APIs are unavailable for Endpoints’ Storage Status report and HyBrid Workloads’ Credit Consumption report and Cost Allocation report.
