Request reports of the protection status from the dashboard

Contributors netapp-nsriram netapp-asubhas

You can request protection details for resources managed by specific plug-ins using the Dashboard. Only data backups are considered for data protection summary.


  1. In the left navigation pane, click Dashboard.

  2. Locate the Latest Protection Summary tile in the Dashboard and use the pull-down menu to select a plug-in.

    The Dashboard displays a donut chart for resources backed up to Primary storage and, if applicable to the plug-in, a donut chart for resources backed up to secondary storage.

    Note Data protection reports are available only for specific plug-ins types. Specifying All Plug-ins is not supported.
  3. Click the donut slice representing the status for which you want a report.

    When you click the donut chart, you are redirected from Dashboard page to the Reports, and then to the Plug-in page. The report displays only status for the plug-in you selected. You can review the report or download it to your local system.

    Note Redirection to the Reports page for SnapMirror donut chart and File-based SAP HANA backup is not supported.
